Backlogs Will Come Down

With the large USCIS backlog and because of the increased fees, USCIS has been on a hiring binge for 1,300 Adjudication Officer openings nationwide. Our February 13, 2007 comment highlighted the USCIS open positions. We recently received a letter from Dan Kane, USCIS Office of Human Capital, Training and Career Development, which said, "Thanks to Immigration Daily, we received over 10,000 additional job applications for the USCIS Adjudication Officer position around the nation. The response was tremendous." We look forward to these new Adjudicators bringing the backlog down soon.

We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by writing to
