Default What a unfair system?

Everybody has been waiting for his/her green card and congratulations to all those who has got their GC. On the other hand it is really unfair and to some extent unethical on the part of USICS not follow a fair system.
There are several people in 2004, 2005 who have been paitently waiting for their turn only to see that people behind them getting approved.
Several of us have writtent to Ombudsman, Director but of no avail.
Not sure what else can be done? Any Idea? Do we have any liaison with AILA who can take up this matter.

can we file a lawsuit against USCIS for not following their own guidelines and "discriminating " against cases ?

All cases should be treated equally... don't care whether they are low hanging fruit or not... every case should be represented equally before an IO...

I dont understand why should hard to determine cases be penalized for USCIS's laziness throughout the year and then trying to speed up the process in the last two months...

You are talking about 2004, 05. What about 2001, 2002 and 2003? There are so many people with 2002 priority dates still waiting just like me. Mine is 02/2002

What a unfair/unethical/inhuman system. I curse everyone who is causing this delay. They will all land up in hell.

I think we have a provable point as per the USCIS CSR msg "We approve all cases based on the order they are received". So basically it says Approval based on ND. Approving Oct'07 NDs and not approving (not even touching) Jul-Sep NDs makes a valid point.
I am not sure how to put our case based on PD because to me PD serves the purpose of passport to get in and then line is formed by ND. But sure, if anyone could put some thoughts and define the situation, I think its well worth to try something different now.

This issue cannot be solved through Lawsuit. What are the other alternatives?

This is really not fair at all. What is the point of the PD then and to top it of there is no one we could contact and have them listen to our concerns.

yeah.. even ND is not being followed... and why give a PD when they have to follow ND anyways ? So wait for 5 years in queue and then due to USCIS lottery system my application gets assigned a later ND... i have to suffer ??? WOW ... that's nice.... that's what's called INJUSTICE...

Default I think they are under pressure to use up the numbers

Hi Guys
My date is not current but I understand the frustration here. However I beleive USCIS is under severe pressure to reduce the backlogs and not waste any numbers this year....so they are trying to exhaust them as and when they can...in that scenaio I guess lower hanging fruits are getting picked.

But on the bright side as I see it as more and more people get their GCs its a smaller line and the officers should be able to get to everyone's file in due course.

I completely believe the system should be FIFO but then don't you think that will be too logical for the USCIS......

Hopefully if they are able to get a lot of people out of the way they should go back to normal processing from October when new numbers are available and the pressure is somewhat less.....

Again above is my theory. I hope everyone gets their green cards soon and the line keeps moving.

regards
Saket
