"More than 13 years have passed since the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was created on March 1, 2003, following the passage of the Homeland Security Act of 2002. As one of seven operational components to emerge from the reorganization of more than 20 federal agencies within DHS, USCIS [U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services] has evolved in significant ways and contributed to the further maturation and identity of the homeland security enterprise. Our strategic plan aligns with the DHS strategic plan, which in turn, operationalizes the Quadrennial Homeland Security Review. This strategic alignment is a significant achievement that advances the unified vision of a homeland that is safe, secure, and resilient against terrorism and other hazards-where American interests, aspirations, and way of life can thrive. Our plan identifies five goals with supporting objectives and strategies informed by our changing environment. For each goal, we have identified outcomes that will help us to identify success and indicators of progress that will help us gauge progress toward what we seek to achieve."
