Earlier this week, sixteen Congressional House representatives sent a letter to Sec. Jeh Johnson (DHS) and Sec. John Kerry (DOS) for answers related to September’s bumbled visa bulletin roll-out that resulted in a last minute revised Visa Bulletin, just days before the October 1 live date.

This blog produced several articles on the series of events, which has been dubbed “Visa Gate” on Twitter.

Sept. 9 - NEW VISA BULLETIN ALLOWS EARLY FILING OF I-485s

Sept. 16 - MORE NEWS AND ANALYSIS ON THE NEW VISA BULLETIN

Sept 26 - REVISED VISA BULLETIN REVEALS TONE DEAF USCIS

Oct 10 - IN DEPTH ANALYSIS OF THE NOVEMBER 2015 VISA BULLETIN

The House Member’s letter asks for the estimated number of applicants who were impacted by the last minute revised Visa Bulletin.
