Last week in Washington, DC the IIUSA Board of Directors formally adopted a resolution to undertake the mission of breaking the unacceptable backlog of I-526 petition processing. This decision came after substantial input from IIUSA Regional Center members who have seen processing time for I-526 petitions grind to an unacceptable length of processing.
In order to remedy the situation, IIUSA intends to articulate the delays in terms of the economic impact that is being unnecessary halted due to these delays. In other words, we are going to use the data we collect to describe the delays in terms of lost capital formation and resulting U.S. job creation – all at no cost to the taxpayer.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
IIUSA is collecting receipt numbers (or WAC#’s, as most of us know them in shorthand) for I-526’s. Use the link below to submit your receipt numbers, which will be kept in confidence by IIUSA:
The image below is a screenshot from USCIS’ Case Status web application showing the current processing times that they are reporting. IIUSA members have indicated that the times below are not reflective of the real amount of time that it is taking for I-526 petitions to be adjudicated. Help us show USCIS and other interested federal agencies just how slow processing has gotten.
