ABSTRACT

Remedial Measures Made Necessary by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita   [open pdf - 76KB]

"This memorandum discusses remedial measures made necessary by the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina (Katrina) and Hurricane Rita (Rita). While this memorandum discusses specific measures that can be taken, USCIS employees should not view the subjects discussed in the memo as the exclusive measures that can be taken. In general, USCIS employees should take a generous approach to addressing issues brought about by the hurricanes and should use whatever proper means are available to them to remedy hurricane-related immigration situations. This approach is consistent with the approach taken by USCIS and Legacy INS in response to other disasters that have caused immigration-related complications, such as the December 26, 2004 Tsunami. This guidance is meant to be ongoing and not exhaustive except where specifically provided, such that in the future when an adverse immigration-related consequence of Katrina or Rita is discovered, USCIS should attempt to remedy that consequence."
