Since 2005, Congress has engaged in a political tug of war over passing Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR). Whether Congress decides to consider legislation this year, next year, or in five years, the need to overhaul how our nation manages the immigration system is more apparent than ever.
Where Deloitte can help
Deloitte is positioned as a leader to help our clients through this monumental challenge, in large part because Deloitte serves federal clients at every stage of the immigration life-cycle: from visa processing at the U.S. Department of State, to securing our borders and interior at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Customs and Border Protection, to supporting the intake and transformation of the benefit application process at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
While it is likely that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and its immigration-related agencies would be primarily responsible for administering a reform program, other federal agencies will be significantly impacted by CIR legislation, including the Social Security Administration, Department of Labor and the Department of Education, to name a few. Deloitte is on the cutting edge of immigration issues and welcomes the opportunity to showcase our full, cross-functional suite of innovative services to potential clients.
