Is 1.76 Million applications going to have an effect on AOS?

52 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I guess I am lucky I got through the AOS process; I have copied in part a local news paper article. I have no idea how this may affect the visa process such as a K1, but without additional staffing it would have to slow USCIS down

“Up to 1.76 million illegal immigrants could be eligible for a two-year reprieve from deportation under an Obama administration program that begins accepting applications today.

The program is funded through an application fee of $465, although exemptions will be made for minors, homeless youth and youth with chronic disabilities whose income is below 150 percent of the poverty level, among other exceptions.

Individuals who apply will be scheduled for a biometrics appointment and subject to background checks against several databases. They will be asked to provide financial, medical, school, military, employment and other records to prove that they have met the requirements.

He could not predict how long it might take to process an application, saying that will depend on the volume and pace of applications.”

Good luck to all awaiting an AOS after today :( Thank you MR. President!!!!

Well i am sure everything is switching to this. I would thing it needs to be done by election time. Look at what all the applications for Syria did to poor Vermont. They still trying to catch up.

Here's praying they have some extra folk tucked away and just adjudicated applications for spouces and fiance'/fioancee' quickly for ll my peeps here.

Now if NVC would just do the same and get the move on. Goodness.

I want to clarify, it makes no difference if these applications are approved before election time. Thier approved application would have zero impact on the election. Why? They can't vote. They are conditional residents (2 year) on a deferred status, not citizens. The mere action of him providing this avenue however is an attempt to gain the approval (and votes of course) of the millions of hispanic citizens who may have family members or friends that will likely be affected by this.

Check out the Politics and Religion as I beleive there are a number of these threads already in existence.


Total elapsed time between filing I-129F to GC in hand 569 days or 1 Year, 6 months, 22 days.

Good point on the voting, but these people are not conditional residents at all. They have no legal status, just a "no deport" order and an EAD. These people are NOT getting permanent residence. I think this is an important distinction, because people here are getting all angry saying "we did things the legal way and these people get rewarded" but I think it's important to note they aren't getting too much. Giving them an EAD also allows the US to collect their taxes more easily, instead of them working under-the-table jobs, so it's good for the economy.

You must not be near illegals, I stood at polling place last election and watched them come and point say NO ID get ballot be back in line in 30 minutes, speaking not a word of english. Pointed it out to officials they said sorry we can not require ID or proof of citizenship. But did say ballot was special ones not always counted??

Those people have to be registered to vote beforehand, and their register is checked. There was a recent study out that counted .75 cases of voter fraud per state per year. Yeah, not a lot, less than a person per state on average.

That was a pretty messed up thing to say. How do you know the education and skill levels of those that are eligible? Or that they can only work at mowing lawns, being a maid or working 'odd' jobs?

Just because they did not speak English did not mean they were illegal. Like Harpa said, it is not true that voter fraud is a rampant, large problem. You must be registered to vote before going to the polling booth, at least that is the case for most states.

That's funny about not being near illegals. We have tons here. Whole plants were shut down due to it all being run by illegal workers. But I digress...I know voting laws here in my state changed. No photo ID and voter registration that matches that ID, no vote. Simple as that. I suspect this election will be ugly.

The point of my post was to clarify these people are not getting voting rights. No one but a Citizen has the right to vote. The government trying to get their applications pushed through before the election is a moot point because of that.

I only mentioned the applications getting done before election wasn't for voting but getting it done. Just in case the republicans win and kill this bill. Heck I don't know. I don't get what 2 years will do. Than what do all these 1.76 million do.

And really that sure is a low low number. I think they will be mighty shocked when this is all over.

A lot of people are missing the point. Unemployment is still near record highs and a LOT of citizens cannot find work. This is a slap in the faces of millions of un-and-under employed Americans. It's just too bad that as a nation, we're lazy and won't take that to the polls.
