Thread: Visa Bulletin vs USCIS

  1. #1
    In July 2007, the visa bulletin indicated that all priority dates were current. At that time my AOS filing was done. I have received my 485 receipt. Shortly after the visa bulletin retrogress dates back to 2003. However the USCIS shows a date after my receipt date. Does that mean my file is being processed or do I have to go back to watching the priority date on the visa bulletin.

    The USCIS opened the 'floodgates' for filing in July 2007, under which it seems everyone applied for their I-485 processes.

    Your case will not continue to be processed until #1 your priority date is current according to the visa bulletin, and #2 your receipt date is current according to the USCIS processing times. They go hand in hand.

    It means nothing.

    If you look at the USPS "Post Office", you’ll see that they have competition from FedEx, UPS, DHL, etc. The Post Office is quite efficient runs like a business, and actually treats its constituents as customers.

    The USCIS on the other hand has no competition, answers to nobody, and does not consider sub human aliens as customers.

    Many people have found themselves in your position. When you have a pending Adjustment of Status application that is based on an Immigrant Petition that requires Visa Number availability, the US CIS always checks the current Visa Bulletin before making a final decision. If your priority date has retrogressed, your I-485 will remain pending until the Priority Date is current again. Keep in mind that it could take years before the priority date becomes current again. This means that the US CIS Monthly Processing Time Report has no bearing on your I-485 application. Even if they are currently processing I-485 applications filed after yours was filed, they will not be able to make a final decision on your application until the Visa Bulletin Priority Date is current. I would suggest that you check the new Visa Bulletin every month and when your Priority Date becomes current, you should immediately call the USCIS National Customer Service Center to file a service request on your I-485.
    Leviticus 19:33-34
    "When an alien lives with you in your land, do not mistreat him. The alien living with you must be treated as one of your native-born. Love him as yourself, for you were aliens in Egypt. I am the LORD your God."

    I agree treat them as one of your own but not when they break the laws that even born/naturalized citizens are expected to obide by.

    Without enforcement our nations laws become worthless. Laws exist for the good and protection of all not for those who randomly decide which ones they abide by and which ones they willfully and knowing break.

    I am not talking about those who make innocent mistakes. I am talking about those who enter with a premeditated agenda to fraud the american people and the immigration laws.

    Continue to help those who have innocently made errors. But do not reward those who have blatently harmed others and break our laws.

    Well said RH.
