What are My Options if I Can’t Attend My Biometrics Appointment?

 

Most applicants seeking immigration benefits must undergo a records check. This records check is often initiated through a scheduled biometrics appointment held at a USCIS Application Support Center (ASC). During the appointment, your fingerprints will be taken and electronically submitted to various government agencies’ databases. Your biometric information is captured in order to conduct a criminal background check and to also ensure that you are the same person who submitted the application for immigration benefits.

On Thursday morning, Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz took a tour of the new building that houses Niagara Lubricant, a manufacturer that used to be located in Black Rock.

A fire destroyed the facility in 2011 and, after a struggle to find financing, the company managed to rebuild with help from the City of Buffalo and Erie County.

The new plant is located on East Delavan in the former American Axle Complex.
