Encountering Delays in Immigration
Delays at the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) are somewhat common. Long waits often the norm due to the overwhelming amount of applications that the USCIS deals with on a regular basis.
Generally, the USCIS reviews applications in the order they were processed. In some family visa cases the USCIS may take longer to decide on a Form I-130 if the recipient’s priority date will not be current for several years, such as in the case of a brother or sister of a U.S. citizen. This does not compromise their place in the queue because a visa has already been established by their noted “priority date”.
How Does Inadmissibility Affect Immigration Status in Lombard?
The U.S. State Department and the Department of Homeland Security may decide if a person is inadmissible any time they ask for permission to enter or stay in the United States.
Inadmissibility can be used to block a person any time they try to apply for a green card, apply for immigration status, or try to cross the border. For instance, if the person decided to leave the U.S. for a lengthy period, committed a crime, or began receiving public assistance since receiving a green card, they may be found inadmissible.
