What does the future hold?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just a topic for discussion and don't really expect a defined answer but if it is now taking 3-6-12+ months for current legal applications to get through the USCIS / NVC labyrinth, what's going to happen if and when O'Bama's executive order starts dumping 5+ million MORE applications into the system?

Will the continued daily 'legal' applications take precedence over the amnesty applications? Or vice versa? Agencies don't have the manpower to process current daily filings in a timely fashion. How are they going to handle that many more?

Any ideas? In any event I hope my wife and I are out of the system before the SH** hits the fan and I really pity those who will follow the legal path in the future.

Probably USCIS will be given the extra workload without additional staffing meaning legal filers get extended wait times. That happened with DACA after all.

Really hoping someone has learnt lessons but I won't hold my breath...

From what I've read, the "executive action" applications are going to be rolled into the current DACA program. The timeline isn't clear, but the guess is maybe sometime in March. Just do a VJ search on the start of DACA a couple of years or so ago to find out the long delays at Service Centers that it caused.

There are c 5 million applications to be processed in less than 2 years.

Something has to give.

My bet is that executive orders slow everything down by months... Yet another backup and disaster for the legal applicants like us. F*^#!

They are only being given permission to work for 3 years at a time. They are not becoming residents at this time...

Yeah so that means every 3 years processing everyone all over again?? That's even worse!
