COURT RULES USCIS MUST ALLOW CONCURRENT FILING OF RELIGIOUS WORKER ADJUSTMENT APPLICATIONS

Rate this Entry

This is great news for those waiting forever on I-360 applications. A US District Court in Seattle has ruled that USCIS must accept adjustment applications concurrently with I-360 religious worker green card applications, something allowed for all other employment-based green card cases (except those in backlogged categories). I've had cases over the years where ministers, priests and rabbis were faced with falling out of legal status because the five year limit on their R-1 visas came and USCIS was still sitting on an I-360 petition. It is important to note that this is just a district court judge and is not binding on the rest of the country. But it will hopefully give others around the US reason to challenge USCIS on the same grounds. The Associated Press has also written about the case.
