New USCIS Program to Bring Down Wait Times
HARLINGEN – The Citizenship and Immigration Services will be launching a pilot program aimed at expediting the process to come to the U.S. legally.
Waiting for a response on an application of form can take so long. As a result, the Office of Citizenship and Immigration Services Ombudsman announced the federal agency will now report what they consider are more accurate wait times.
The program will apply to forms I-90, I-485, I-751 and N-400.
USCIS will be telling applicants how long it takes for 50 percent of the forms to be processed and how long 95 percent of them will take.
The data they capture will also be released every two weeks instead of every six weeks.
