USCIS To Open New Field Office in Durham, North Carolina

On Monday, June 4th, our attorney Laura Edgerton (Chair of the Carolinas Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association), was one of a select number of guests to attend the groundbreaking ceremony for the new US Citizenship & Immigration Services field office in Durham.  The ceremony was attended by Congressman David Price and members of his staff, representatives from Senator Burr’s office, as well as numerous officials from USCIS and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).  The office is designed to be a 22,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility that will include biometrics processing and benefits processing in one facility.  The facility will be located at 201 Roycroft Drive, in the heart of the Research Triangle.  The office will be able to serve 400 people a day when construction is scheduled to finish in March of 2008.
