Immigration Backlog Update
A recent USCIS press release reports the immigration backlog has been reduced by more than 2.3 million cases during FY 2004.
"Today's announcement continues the trend of showing tremendous progress in eliminating our backlog," said USCIS Director Eduardo Aguirre. "We will continue to realign our workforce with our workload to ensure that we meet the six-month cycle time target at every office for every form type by the end of fiscal year 2006." While we commend USCIS for the progress made to date, we urge Congress to fix the larger systemic problems in our broken immigration system. For the entire press release, see here.
