Just my Honest Opinion.
Well said. Its absolutely true and makes sense. But to delay, it appears that some processes in the agency may be done manually. Otherwise mere increase in number of applications should not cause adverse impact to processing time. I am saying this based on my personal experience working for the state gov. with unemployment benefit system where the claims increased by 3 time, last year...and there was not much of an impact with regards to delaying in printing of checks every week. Only the batch jobs ran longer....but everything was streamline in couple of weeks after the spike.

If you are replaceable then you have false claimed in your application that no American is available for your job. It defeats your H1B and Green card application. America invites H1Bs and gives them greencards not because they are paying taxes but because employers prove no american is available for our job and we have unique skills for job. 'Best and Brightest' is we are and USA needs us. Without us the economy will be more bad.

You must be dumb. Did you read the whole sentence and if you cannot comprehend what I am trying to say, you must be incapable of understanding it. I said in TODAYS WORLD. The world is changing very fast. GC process takes 10 years now.
I am sure whatever technology you are working on, there are 100 more people capable of filling that position as of now. So, even your so called skilled position can be filled within few days. USCIS interprets even today, what the conditions were at the time of filing. Not what the current job/wage or labor market conditions are.

Default irreplacable?

So, you are saying that you are irreplaceable? Dare to post your skillset? I bet I can find atleast 10 americans (resumes or candidates who are looking for a job) in 10 minutes time in your skill set. Wanna give it a shot?

your id rightly tells your attitude...we are talking about USCIS delays and you are talking about something else...Join twitter to tweet nonsense, but don't kill a valid topic here.

Our problem in discussion in here is reg EAD or our GC's we need a fix if any one still in EAD not received please stand up and post in my thread ...

In the info pass appointment when I asked what is causing the delay in sending an approved AP, the officer says, if you did not get the approval notice in 45 days, call us back. This after waiting for more than 90days from the date of application. So, its not there until you have it in hand. Merely getting an approval these days is not enough, since they take anywhere upto 45 days to send the approval to you.

Attrocity to the core and the height of irresponsibility.
My wife's EAD card was delayed beyond 90 days. I called USCIS 3 times and they did the service request, but told us we would have to wait 45 more days. At the 96 day mark, I quickly filled out requests for my senators office to get involved and they helped out. EAD was in mail the next week.

Default A friend here in Chicago

realized late that he had the expiry date wrong in his mind. So he has applied and it is > 100 days. They moved the already CPO date from Oct 10 to 29th, stating "lack of printable cards" (learned through info pass).

Imagine he is sitting at home, not working for > 3 months because he did not keep track of his expiry dates.

Because of one negligence, he is losing a lot of salary by not working.

The current EAD delays is certainly scary. Hope it is an exception not the norm.

Is there any pattern to the delays....in the sense that, did the applicants apply it late or the USCIS has been late in spite of applying around 120 days before expiry of EAD?

To mailmy_gc : You are very lucky to have it on the 100th day i guess..Mine is pending 98 days and i went to local office - Newark, NJ today and they told me your file is with the IO and you are probably struck in background check - cant understand he spend 90+ days on background check alone! and i am still counting. I met atleast 3 people whose EAD is pending and expired and are counting days. I cant beleive USCIS is no ruthless and care a damn about legal immigrants.

Can anyone tell me how else i can expediate? - I already tried 2 Info pass, one service request, Letter to CIS ombustman (they did respond with rrecommendation). I havent contacted senator (does it help - if so do i just call them or go to there office?). Any input will help.
