|USCIS.gov||Official Website of the Department of Homeland Security||U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is the government agency that oversees lawful immigration to the United States. USCIS is funded primarily by immigration and naturalization benefit fees charged to applicants and petitioners. Fees collected from individuals or organizations filing immigration benefit requests are deposited into the Immigration Examinations Fee Account (IEFA). Congress created the IEFA in 1988, establishing the authority to recover the full cost of immigration benefit processing. This account represents approximately 95 percent of USCIS’ fiscal year (FY) 2016 total budget authority. The remaining budget authority comes from two other mandatory fee accounts and appropriated funding for the E-Verify program.|

|Colorado Organizing||Kaytia King, Colorado Organizing Associate 617.448.2061 | Kaytia@fwd.us | tw: @CoKayKing | Our Work to Date||Since the election, one of the projects FWD.us is currently pushing forward is a letter of support from businesses nationwide. We are looking specifically for companies and contacts within those companies to sign on to pledge their support of DACA. This is important because the president elect has promised to repeal DACA on his first day in office. This change could potentially put upwards 800,000 people out of work. DACA recipients contribute to the economy just like citizens do, but they need our help. If you know DACA recipients These companies can be ones that hire DACA recipients that are currently working or companies that hire DACA recipients who could potentially sign on to a letter of support please pass along any contact information for them or their employer that you can so we can reach out to them.|
