CONGRESSMAN JIM HIMES

Representing the 4th District of Connecticut

Immigration

Connecticut's fourth district is a diverse and dynamic part of the nation.  It is part of the greater New York City metro region and the gateway to New England.  As you might expect, my district is home to people from all parts of the world, and many have questions about federal immigration procedures or specific cases.

A good place to start is the homepage of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).  There, you can find links to information about obtaining citizenship, green cards, working in the U.S. and more.

The USCIS website also has a very useful tool called "My Case Status" which will let you know where a case stands.  You can also sign up to receive case updates by email or text message when using this tool on the USCIS website.  Here's a brief introduction and demonstration of the My Case Status feature.
