The mission of the DHS, Office of the Citizenship and Immigration Services Ombudsman is to assist individuals and employers in resolving problems with the USCIS, to identify serious and pervasive systemic issues affecting the delivery of immigration benefits and agency’s responsiveness to the public it serves.

Before joining the Ombudsman’s Office, Mr. Troncone practiced immigration and nationality law, as well as employment law, for over 20 years in the private sector in Washington DC, and in Hawaii, where he served as the Chair of the Hawaii Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. Troncone also served as an Attorney-Advisor to the National Labor Relations Board General Counsel’s Office, Division of Enforcement Litigation, from 1983-1988.
