INS and DoS

  1. May 15, 2007 #1

    I'm not sure whether to post this here or in the politics and world affairs sub-forum, just a small question:

    is Immigration and Naturalization Service a part of Department of State in USA, or are they entirely different institutions?

    Well, I googled immigration and naturalizattion service, and clicked on their home page:


    That gives a statement about a change in ownership, and redirects you to their new home. Does that help? Google is a wonderful tool, BTW.

    INS was a part of the Jusitce Deparment, it is now called USCIS "US Citizenship and Immigration Services" and is part of the new US Department of Homeland Security.

    Edit: I see Berkeman already answered.
