The USCIS has announced that they need more than 500 million dollars to fill a budget gap! They claim that the budget problems were caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic, others say it is a mixture of mismanagement and the Pandemic. USCIS management has notified 13,400 or their 20,000 employees that they will be furlough by the end of the month, August 31st.
