Uplifting processing info

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I don't quite understand what's supposed to be uplifting about this. All that this article is saying is that USCIS process applications from USC's and GC holders to bring their family members to the United States. That's what part of the agency does every day anyway. This article was also published in May and what you posted doesn't have any impact on any processing times at all.

I'm thinking the "uplifting" part of what you posted is that you assume 2,600 applications are processed/approved on a daily basis...so you're thinking the wait times are less?  

 

I don't think they mean on a daily basis 2,600 applications are approved and therefore USCIS moves rapidly through everyone.  Do you have a link to the full article you read, and where the info comes from?

 Perhaps I should have just posted this in basic chitchat.

It was just a bit of information found on the website explaining the applications that they handle each day.

It doesn't say anything about approval or denial or the process.

 

 

Just wanted to share.

Since the US accepts about 1 million legal immigrants each year, and there are generally 261 work days in a year, they're actually approving about 3831 applications every day. Add in how many get processed and denied and it's certainly a tremendous workload. Not really "uplifting" but it does put into perspective that despite the long waits, the people at USCIS are working their butts off to process applications as quickly as they can.

this is from 2014 (sorry i couldn't find the site that i saw the other day for 2016)

but as this says the list is growing

 

More than 4.4 million people are on the legal immigrant visa waiting list according to the State Department's annual tally. That is 100,085 more people waiting for legal immigrant visas than at the same time last year. Ninety-eight percent of those waiting have been sponsored by a family member in the United States.
