U.S to Digitize the Immigration Process

U.S Digitize the Immigration Process

In an attempt to digitize the immigration process, the United States of America has spent as much as 1 billion dollars. The money so spent by the government of the country, only about a thousand of them have made it to the internet.  The information regarding this was revealed by the Washington Post to the world.

The DHS’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services was asked to put the above advice into practice as soon as possible. In this way, they wish to make application forms more acceptable and make things easier for people to apply. Originally, this was supposed to be implemented in the year 2013 itself by making use of less than half a million dollars but circumstances lead to a change.

The amount of investment made!

Things seemed to have changed as it has been reported that the time taken for things to fall in place would be about four years and the cost of this implementation has been estimated to go up to 3 million dollars this time. The delay in this manner, has made many of the people unhappy, who work in the immigration department.

A range of complaints

Kenneth Palinkas, who was the president of the union for workers, expressed the combined frustrations in this manner. His disappointed by the fact that it has been 11 years since the beginning of the project and there has been very little progress in this regard since them. Now the concern is shifted more towards the 11million undocumented immigrants residing in the country.

Through this they wish to simplify the whole process of application and make the country more accessible to people who want to come and make a life in that country.
