Default great report

It appears that the FBI is on a path to complete namechecks within a fixed time frame. This I guess is in part because of the 180 day ruling for adjustment of status and the 120 day rule for naturalization that is already in place.

The report of course throws light on the antiquated system and how it was swamped post 9/11.

I hope the FBI finishes its revamp sooner than later for all of us would definitely like our namechecks being cleared instead of it being left hanging over our heads like the sword of Damocles.

Once again thanks for this excellent link.

NPR news reported today that FBI plans to ensure that by June 2009, most name-checks would clear in 30 days. Cannot cite any source, though.

Default thanks to all who sued USCIS

"The delays in security checks have generated lawsuits against the USCIS and the FBI. The FBI Office of the General Counsel reports that since 2005 more than 6,000 writs of mandamus have been filed by applicants and petitioners in federal courts compelling USCIS to grant or deny benefits without delay.I5 In 2007, a series of class action lawsuits were initiated on behalf of naturalization applicants. The petitions claim that adjudication delays caused by FBI backlogs and alleged mishandling of the security check process violate the Administrative Procedure Act and the Fifth Amendment Due Process Clause of the U.S. Constitution. In addition, some judges have threatened to use their authority to adjudicate applications or petitions.
To address the delays, in September 2007 the FBI and USCIS entered into an agreement to filter out certain FBI case files in an effort to decrease the volume of files reviewed for USCIS name checks and to speed up the name check process."

Yes. I heard this on NPR too in their "All things considered program at 6:45 pm" yesterday.
