Those numbers can be misleading. USCIS does not count petitions pending under FBI Name Check as backlogged.

Default shouldnt "pending" mean anything stuck with USCIS?

Shouldnt this I485 number include all of following:
Employment based or
Family based or
Anyone in FBI Net (name check) or
Anyone in RFE loops etc

They need 10 months to process 146K I-140s but just 3 months for 765s. Ridiculous people.

I believe the 140 backlog is artificial. They processed only 2k cases in one month. How come they finished all EADs in 3 months for all June/July filers? There is something more to all this than meets the eye.

Bootmline is they want to make it hard for us one way or the other. Btw, I had just come out of BEC and got stuck with 140 now.

When did your labor process from BEC? Do you know if there are any pending cases with National processing center, which is the successor of BECs?
