Dear Editor:
Adjudications of I-129's have gone from 30-60 days to 120 days and more. The centers have given a poor excuse that officers need training in the new process of "name checks", whatever that is. Processing times published by AILA and times shown on the I-797's are meaningless. In checking the status of a P-1 petition, now 90 days from the receipt date, we were advised that a further 60-90 days was predicted, for a total of 6 months from receipt by the center. The officer suggested premium processing and added an off hand remark that he needed a raise.

Our first few filings produced success within ten days. We now get RFE's on a regular basis, which, in our opinion, is a stall, based on the requests for evidence which in most cases was filed or is a total misrepresentation of the regulations.

We are of the opinion that a deliberate slowdown is in effect so as to promote premium processing. It cannot be proven, of course, but we intend to make Senators Feinstein and Kennedy aware of this deplorable situation. It would be interesting to hear the views of other practitioners.

N.A.Hyman.
