Homeland Security May Soon Tap Leader of Anti-Immigration Group As Ombudsman

Julie Kirchner spent a decade advocating for extreme restrictions on immigrations.

So it comes as a surprise to many that Homeland Security is  expected to name her as ombudsman to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, a job that requires her to help immigrants and report abuse among government officials, Pacific Standard reports

From 2005 to 2015, Kirchner served as director of the anti-immigration group Federation for American Immigration Reform.

Pacific Standard wrote:

The ombudsman’s office at USCIS provides assistance to immigrants who run into trouble with the agency, such as immigration applications that take too long to process or applications that may have been improperly rejected. The ombudsman also prepares an annual report for Congress in which they can issue audits and policy recommendations without consulting with USCIS in advance.

As the nation’s immigration agency, USCIS handles a wide range of legal immigration matters, including applications for citizenship and green cards. The agency can also grant legal status to those in extreme circumstances, such as refugees and asylum seekers. In addition, the agency is in charge of adjudicating applications from undocumented immigrants who were brought to the country illegally as children, sometimes referred to as “dreamers” or DACA recipients.
