The Immigration and Naturalization Service has changed it's name. It is now "USCIS," United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. It is controlled by the Department of Homeland Security, "DHS". The Department of Homeland Security ("DHS") was not created to be user-friendly. The DHS was not created to help foreign nationals.
