Ask Ellis Video – 7/19/20 – USICS Update: Green Card Production Backlog, EAD Card Delays
Ombudsman’s Office is warning that delays continue and could get worst for some secure documents issued by the USCIS. The delays are being caused by the USCIS’s reduction of its capacity to print secure documents, such as Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) Cards and Employment Authorization Documents (EAD). Many foreign nationals are facing delays of more than a month in receiving their approved LPR (often called a green card), and EADs that are normally issued and mailed within days of approval. Applicants are also experiencing extended delays in the time it takes USCIS to adjudicate these types of applications. These delays are impacting both foreign nationals and their US employers.
