The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency announced the opening of a new “one stop shop” immigration office in Long Island City early next year. The facility will reduce some of the legwork required for many immigration documents, but the expansion does not include the hiring of additional staff – a step immigrant advocates say would more significantly reduce the lengthy process of obtaining documented status.
According to a spokesperson, the 104 employees that will staff the new office located at 27-35 Jackson Avenue will be transplants from the Garden City office, which will be closed and split into two locations: one in Long Island City and the other in Holtsville.
