Still waiting for physical green card

My CR1 was approved at the beginning of November 2021 and I entered the US later that month (paid the fees) for a week before returning to the UK to complete my work contract. I then entered the US permanently at the beginning of April and now it's May and almost 6 months later I am still waiting for the physical green card to arrive? Is it normal to take this long?

Hi all,

How do I notify USCIS of a change of my address? Initially was down for Washington D.C but have since moved to Honolulu due to my wife's work.

I'm finally pressing "submit" on my citizenship application today. Its all filled out. I came here on a K1 visa in 2012 and have been divorced coming up 4 years from a US citizen.

I've included my divorce paperwork including changing my name back to my maiden name and 3 years of tax transcripts for myself as additional evidence.

Im good to go right?

Biden administration details how Ukrainian refugees can enter US on humanitarian grounds

(CNN)The Biden administration announced a new program Thursday called "Uniting for Ukraine" that will provide a streamlined process for Ukrainian refugees seeking to come to the United States.

The move comes come nearly one month after President Joe Biden pledged to admit up to 100,000 Ukrainians fleeing Russia's invasion and is designed to more quickly get Ukrainians interested in coming to the US.
CNN reported earlier Thursday that the humanitarian parole program will require Ukrainians seeking entry to the US to be sponsored by a US citizen or individual, which would include resettlement organizations and non-profit organizations.
The Ukrainian applicants will need to undergo rigorous security vetting and checks, including biographic and biometric screening, and complete vaccinations and other public health requirements, including receiving the Covid-19 vaccine, to be eligible. Ukrainians must have also been residents in Ukraine as of February 11.
Sponsors would need to pass security background checks of their own as well as declare financial support. There is not a limit on the number of individuals that a person or group can sponsor, but administration officials noted they'll be evaluating their means and ability to support Ukrainians. The Department of Homeland Security will administer the program.
"DHS will continue to provide relief to the Ukrainian people, while supporting our European allies who have shouldered so much as the result of Russia's brutal invasion of Ukraine," Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in a statement.
Through this process, Ukrainian applicants would be allowed to travel to the US and be considered for humanitarian parole on a case-by-case basis for up to two years. If accepted, the individuals would be eligible for work authorization.
Individuals can begin submitting applications through an online portal on April 25.
The limited pathways to the US so far have resulted in hundreds of Ukrainians going to Mexico, where it's easier to obtain a visa, to then try to enter the US through land ports of entry. More than 5,000 Ukrainians attempted to enter the US in March, including more than 3,200 at the southern border with Mexico, according to US Customs and Border Protection data.
A Homeland Security official stressed Thursday that Ukrainians shouldn't travel to Mexico to enter the US.
"Following the launch of Uniting for Ukraine, Ukrainians who present at land U.S. ports of entry without a valid visa or without pre-authorization to travel to the United States through Uniting for Ukraine will be denied entry and referred to apply through this program," according to DHS.
In addition to the humanitarian parole program, the State Department is working to expand its Refugee Admissions Program operations in Europe, with the goal of providing eligible individuals with better access to the Lautenberg program, an initiative aimed at helping those fleeing religious persecution from the Soviet Union, as well as stepping up referral mechanisms for Ukrainians seeking permanent resettlement.
More than 5 million people have fled Ukraine since Russia's invasion began in late February, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees said Wednesday.
