Have you contacted your local Senator/Congressman's office?

 

Why haven't you apply for citizenship yet?

You should definitely apply for citizenship you should quality by now assuming you haven't made many long trips outside the US.

Goodness..that sounds like a long time. I would contact your Congressman and see what they can do (Senator). Are you from Nigeria? They have a lot of AP from certain countries

Assuming you otherwise qualify for citizenship, and intend to apply, do so. Removal of Conditions (ROC) are low-priority petitions for USCIS, so they can delay as long as they want, especially if there's an issue of concern to them.

 

They are more responsive to citizenship applications. Because, by law, USCIS cannot approve your citizenship application until they have decided the ROC, applying for citizenship will (kinda) force USCIS to decide the ROC petition. They'll still do a background check for the citizenship even after this ROC background check (the estimated processing time for citizenship in Milwaukee is currently 7.5-16 months), so make them do both at the same time!

 

Here's what I would do:

  • Apply for citizenship now (after you've determined that you're eligible), preferably under the 5-year rule. Meanwhile...
  • Contact your Congressional rep for casework assistance with USCIS for your ROC (https://gwenmoore.house.gov/constituent-services/casework/). Ask for expeditious adjudication of your ROC. Articulate the harm (real or potential) the delay is causing you (repeated secondary inspection at ports of entry; costs and effort to go to USCIS to obtain evidence of legal status in the US for travel; potential delays in your citizenship application).
  • Contact the CIS Ombudsman for help with your long-delayed I-751 ROC (https://www.dhs.gov/case-assistance). Do likewise as with your Congresswoman.

Good luck!
