Actually, they transferred all of TSC files to CSC which affected all receipts from June to December 2007. It's only lately that they have transferred them to VSC. Some NSC files were also sent to CSC.

This move to VSC is probably because CSC is now back-logged from all the transfers.

Wow, dude, didn't you hear? All the TSC cases transferred to VSC will be handled right away while all of the original VSC cases will be partly burned and partly sent to TSC (or as I like to call it, the immigration gestapo) where they will spend some quiet time under the cherry coke boxes in the basement.

Hey, bud. It's rather simple, really. They can't send the entire load to TSC (otherwise, the TSC will be back to square one). They will have to get rid of some of the cases. You just wait and see until you get an RFE from TSC asking for... everything. That would be the sign that your stuff has fed the flames. Hee-hee.

With the massive transfers from TSC, longer delays are definitely to be expected at VSC. Understand that the USCIS is not designed to be an efficient organization and the officers are not even trying. Their goal is to do what is convenient for THEM and not necessarily what's in the immigrant's best interest. They're not paid on commission or performance so they really don't care.

However, I will give credit to the former USCIS director, Eduardo Aguirre. He made security, faster processing and backlog reduction the hallmark of his tenure. But the same cannot be said of the current director, Emilio Gonzalez. Massive cross-country transfers, chaos, fee increases, longer delays and reversal of previous gains made in backlog reduction seems to be defining his administration.

I understand the aggravation over other cases being shoved in front of you. Consider also that some TSC people have waited over a year now. At some point those petitions have to be approved. Sad that it is at the expense of VSC applicants but would waiting 6 to 9 months be so bad (I would have loved that instead of being stuck at TSC for now 9 months and expecting a year wait)?

As was said, TSC applications WERE being forwarded to CSC for a good long while. Now apparently it's VSC's turn to more or less bend over and take it. What I want to know is why the transfers are ALWAYS going FROM either Texas or Nebraska TO somewhere else and neither of those two locations is EVER able to get their act together enough to TAKE some transfers at whatever point. But regardless...all will be processed in the government's time and there's nothing we can really do about it (other than contacting senators, that is) so why get so worked up over it? You're here, you have your significant other, you SHOULD have a letter extending the conditional residency for a year soooo...what's the problem?

What I want to know is why they didn't instead bulk transfer us old TSC filers to CSC, which is still cranking out approvals in 2-3 month time frames. For that matter, they should have bulk transferred us to CSC back when they started transfering new TSC petitions on July 1.

I believe that I read somewhere that TEXAS takes a huge amount of H1-B applications (temporary work permit). Since businesses selling out domestic jobs takes precedence over family visas, they're behind. We get H1-Bs in house in under 3 weeks.......

I've asked this very question the USCIS customer rep at my appointment - I didn't get an answer to why it took TSC 11 months to figure out that they want to transfer to VSC now.
