It appears that this 655K includes family based I485 cases too who are in a different queue.

From the pdf:

1,383,975 I-130 spouse/relative petitions;
654,864 applications to adjust status;
281,122 I-765 employment authorizations;
188,559 I-131 reentry permit/advance parole;
63,083 I-90 Green Card renewals/replacements.

654,864 - see below - any thoughts? 320,000 to 350,000 primary applicants!

According to I485: AOS includes - K1, K2, asylum, native or citizen of Cuba, refugee, living before 1972, spouse and minor of Cuba native.

NO,
Family based has 1.3 Million pending applications.
AOS has only 655K. So be happy. :D

Do you mean EB based AOS alone is 655K? 1.3 million is I-130 petition which is different from AOS.

I-130, Petition for Alien Relative
I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker

Both require a I-485 to adjust status

Why are number of I-485 less than number of I-130

I-130, Petition for Alien Relative
I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker

Both require a I-485 to adjust status

Family based, majority (90%) is done by consular processing. AOS mostly for EB based. Petition for relatives is from the mother country, who is not present in USA for AOS. Yes - I agree with andy garcia

I-130, Petition for Alien Relative
I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker

Both require a I-485 to adjust status

The statistics they have provided might be correct but useless for any PD date information. Applications include all kinds of 485s, AP, EAD and renewals.
If USCIS really wanted to provide statistics they should have provided how many EB based 485s they have (further dividing them by PD year and country), and same thing for family based. Clubbing these two together is stupid.

I agree. given that they process close to 600K green cards per year, we should all be current by this report.

It looks like this including dependents -- good news.

According to:
http://www.uscis.gov/files/nativedocuments/AILAQandASept2007.pdf

there were about 320K applications (likely primary applications). Remember that July fiasco only affected EB (not family based).

quote: "While we continue to receipt the work we recently received, we project that we received over 320,000 adjustment applications due to the July visa bulletin."

So that's only 5 years to clear the backlog, assuming minimal lost GC, and no new applications by ROW (thus reducing or stopping spill over). Of course ROW will continue to create new applications.

Although July Fiasco was for EB only, there was a rush to file AOS for family based as well because of USCIS Fee increase from July 31st. Unless USCIS comes out with stats, everything else is guessing game. I guess that we can have better estimate after 3 or 4 bulletins and based on its forward movement.

If this 655K number of AOS is true, then the number of pending EB AOS is NOT big.

The total number of pending AOS in June, right before the July VB fiasco, is 597K.

Because DOS controls FB cut off date pretty well, we donít expect receiving spike and approving spike for FB cases in July VB fiasco. In another word, the number of FB received cases and the number of FB approved cases
should be about same.

EB pending cases in September only grows (655K-597K= 58K) compared with the number in June.

This 58K cases probably are evenly distributed from 2001 to 2007, roughly10K
every year.

So, we should see big jump in EB Visa bulletin, since there are no BEC, 245i excuses any more and all the cases are in the hand of USCIS.




per USCIS released information approx 655K AOS pending application as of end of Sept 2007.

I don't think 655K is a lot. Remember, 655K is for both EB and FB.
Now every year USCIS approved about 700-800K AOS, that mean they
can clear the 655K in less one year, why 655K is a big number?


get real man... 655K is lot of applications
just by plain math these will be done in Five years. If you add name check and other stuff this may be even more.
Also this time is on the top of what we have already waited for till now.

When USCIS isnt even providing simple meaningful reports (seperate EB 485 numbers) working with these random statistics is total waste.

is around 1.5million out of which meagerly 140K goes to employment based.

remember the bulk of the pending AOS are from retrogressed countries. So even those from ROW who have not yet filed (and may do so next few years) need to be added to the "pending AOS" in order to obtain the 'real' que size of pending AOS applications.
