Not to minimize any problems you're experience with the process of your visa but I doubt the Director of USCIS or the Director of DHS will answer any questions about a person's individual visa.

If you're having problems with your visa, the best bet is probably to involve your senator. I've read on here that most senators have their own immigration liaison and it seems many senators are willing to step in and help out.

Have you tried sharing your issue here on VJ and see if anyone here can help? I'm sure you're not alone with this issue, whatever it is, and maybe there is someone with the solution or guidance right here on VJ.

Hope it works out for you.

thank you for your reply.

my case is I-130.

USCIS received it in December 2014 back from Mumbai (India) consulate. every time i call USCIS they are saying they are doing review.

I have already contacted congressman, senator, white house and ombudsman. So far no luck.

That was the only suggestion I had, sorry. :( But I think there's a forum on VJ that discuss approved petitions that are sent back to USCIS after embassy review. Not sure where it is but just search for it. I think there you'll get much more specific help to your problem from others in the same boat.

Good luck and I hope it works out as soon as possible.

Can you elaborate.. without getting into personal specifics.. what the 221g was for? The IO would have said something after the interview.

I think OP wants different answers, but AP, review no one can

speed up & reviews are taking a look at something which

may turn out to be no biggie , however I would not force uscis

hands for a denial....immigrating to the US is a privilege & not

a right, advocacy groups cant make any marks on a non specific

issue as to speed up a review for one individual. .Thousands awaits
