In a new move, the presidential advisory commission has unanimously voted to suggest that US President Joe Biden fasten the processing time for Green cards or permanent residency within six months.
If implemented, this move could give rise to a spark of joy among thousands and hundreds of Indian- Americans which shall comprise even those who have been waiting for years for approval of their Green cards.
A Green card is an official permit that is, in other ways, disguised as a Permanent Resident Card that is issued to the overseas immigrants of the USA as proof that the applicant has been given the perk and the status of living as a permanent resident of US.
For approval, these recommendations of the President’s Advisory Commission on Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (PACAANHPI) shall be sent to the White House. During the meeting of the PACAANHP, wherein it received the unanimous approval of 25 commissioners, the proposal regarding this matter received the support of a well-known Indian-American community leader Ajay Jain Bhutoria.
To slash the enormous piling up of the US green card backlog, the advisory committee suggested the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) assess their processes, systems, and policies. And as a result, get in order new internal cycle time goals by syncing the processing and taking out the repetitive steps if there are any, as well as automation of manual approvals, up-gradation of their internal dashboards and reporting system along with improving their policies.
These recommendations aim to bring down the cycle time for all forms in association with family-based Green Card applications, DACA renewals, and other Green card applications. There was advice by the National Visa Center (NVC) State Department facility to recruit more officers to enhance their potential for Green card interview applications processing by 100 percent in a matter of 3 months right from August 2022.
This can also increase Green Card application visa interviews and come to decisions by 150 percent. The commission also recommended that the USCIS increase the premium processing times for additional employment-based Green Card applications, work permit petitions, and temporary immigration status requests for extension. It will permit the candidates to pay USD 2,500 for their case to be solved and settled within 45 days in a phased manner.
