Comments submitted to USCIS regarding revisions to form N-648 (Medical Certification for Disabilities Exception)
The group was formed by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) in 1999 in response to the settlement in Campos, et al v. INS et al, a lawsuit filed on behalf of disability waiver applicants. Through the group, our organizations met regularly with INS over a period of four years and provided input to INS on policy guidance related to disability waivers, reasonableaccommodations, and oath waivers. The group also worked on revisions to the Form N-648 in 2000 that resulted in significant improvements to the form.
We were pleased that Director Mayorkas agreed to undertake a new revision of the Form N-648
following our letter to him in September 2009. We greatly appreciate the opportunity we had to
meet with USCIS to review and provide feedback on drafts of the Form N-648 before it was
published in the Federal Register.
