 Immigration services officers are agents of the USCIS. Job duties include researching and analyzing applications, petitions and supporting documentation; interviewing petitioners and applicants to assess credibility; and denying or granting petitions and applications. Immigration services officers may also interact with the media and community groups. At times, they work with other agencies and lawyers, and they might represent the Department of Homeland Security in court proceedings.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness..."
These words from the Declaration of Independence are among the most influential ever put on paper. The countless pleas for liberty and equality that have used the Declaration as a model are proof of its lasting power. The original Declaration challenged the authority of the British crown. Just within the United States, subsequent declarations have targeted capitalism, land owners, white supremacy, and the patriarchy. Time and again, those unhappy with the status quo have invoked the Declaration. Tyranny has meant different things to different people since 1776, but the search for liberty, however defined, goes on.
