Visa Delays Due To N-400 Overload and Politics?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

What are the chances you think that the reason everything seems to be stopped dead in the visa processing centers is that they have been told to frantically push all the N-400 naturalization visas through first so that the recipients can vote for Hillary (or vote at all) in the November election?

Seems to me that if the office processes all types of visas, then the huge influx of those N-400s would probably take political precedence. Since our beneficiaries will not be able to vote, does that then increase our wait time? Possibility? Would anyone on this list know?

Seems to me that there would not be a commensurate flood of K1s, as those are not filed on a whim - i.e. you file a K1 when you want to bring your fiance into the country. Anyone with a green card can file for an N-400 anytime. So there should not have been a flood of K1s around the fee increase announcement.

In addition, what do you think the chances are that the new fees have allowed them to hire additional processors which may be able to reduce the processing times?

Thanks...Chris

There were a flood of all types of applications/petitions. Just as people filed for green cards sooner than they might have and citizenship sooner than they might have without a fee increase, I am sure that some people filed for the K-1 sooner than they may have otherwise to beat the fee increases.

That doesn't make any sense at all. The service centers are not under the direction of the president, congress or any senator. They are just struggling to make service on everything submitted, and will alocate manpower as needed.
