OSC Investigates Whistleblower’s Claims at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services

According to the Washington Post, the Office of Special Counsel is investigating the claim of Maria Aran, a whistleblower at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.   Aran complained that one of the Florida offices mishandled hundreds of naturalization and citizenship certificates.  Instead of emailing her complaint to the Office of Security and Integrity, she mistakenly sent her complaint to over 300 agents nationwide.  Following the disclosure, her supervisor attempted to reassign Aran, but Merit Systems Protection Board stepped in stating, “there are reasonable grounds to believe that the agency decided to reassign Ms. Aran because of her protected disclosures.”
