A letter from USCIS

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This letter was sent to the senator of my State from USCIS.

This E-mail message is in reply to your inquiry regarding the Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, which your constituent filed with USCIS on February 12, 2014.

USCIS records confirm that your constituent’s case is pending background check clearance. USCIS is committed to adjudicating immigration benefits in a timely manner while also ensuring public safety and national security. A small percentage of applications and petitions have unresolved background check issues that delay adjudication. Although USCIS makes every effort to resolve such cases promptly, USCIS is unable to speculate when the background check will be completed.

If a background check reveals an issue that may impact the eligibility for the requested immigration benefit, further inquiry is needed. The inquiry may include an additional interview and/or contact with another agency for updates or more comprehensive information. Upon gathering and assessing all available information, USCIS will adjudicate the application as quickly as possible.

USCIS realizes that your constituent may be frustrated by the progress of this case. However, the agency must balance individual inconvenience against broader issues of public safety and national security.

Based on your email, we will ask for a supervisory review of this case to see if we can expedite the process.

If your constituent has not received a notice of action or any other information within 30 days from the date of this message, please contact us for an update.

We hope this information is helpful. If we may be of further assistance, please let us know.

Thank you,

Congressional Liaison Specialist
