In response to the new policy allowing for processing of green card cases and other applications with FBI name checks pending for more than 180 days, USCIS is sweeping its files looking for eligible cases, according to AILA.
AILA’s service center operations liaison confirmed USCIS is proactively searching for those adjustment of status cases that can be processed now under the new policy. USCIS told AILA its target date for identifying and acting on eligible cases is April 30, 2008.
AILA national and local offices will continue to monitor USCIS’s actions in light of the new policy. Our site will provide updates as the situation develops.
