Default Well

They may not the FPs for everybody but they can always run the names against suspected persons list.

Default We should propose a Premium Processing for FBI Namecheck/ Other Background checks

IV should propose a Premium Processing for FBI Namecheck/ Other Background checks. For certain extra fee UCIS/ FBI can do this on premium bases.

Default I think it might also depend how long you've been in US

me and my friend, both are stuck into this right now. Both are having different nationality and we both are in this country from last 10 yrs. So I think it might also depends on your history, as longer stay, your name will pop-out from many places, which will delay the things.

Default See what's going on with 140 Premium.

Like 140 premium that program will be first suspended and then dumped eventually because there are resource and Process problems internally.

Unless you fix root causes - these Premium things ain't going to work.

What is the root cause for namecheck issues ? the Ombudsmans report mentions
a) the value/benefit of the name check process is undecided.
b) lack of resources and funding to process all the name checks.
(premium processing will provide those funds)

immigration relief like recapture, more visas etc require congressional approval and i dont think we will see any till mid 2009 after the election is settled.

The root case of the issue is lack of the responsibility and management in FBI/USCIS.
How could a name check wait for several years? Nobody is working on it, that's how. You can not explain it any other way. There is no streamlined process to process NC requests. All USCIS requests have a priority level 3 - requests WITHOUT specific deadlines. All other problems - bad search criteria that produces too many false hits, the decision to search in reference files for all requests, lack of electronic document depository for NNCP - are secondary. When expedite is requested on the NC, the FBI resolves it in a matter of weeks. In fact, they can process up to 100 expedite requests a week without affecting productivity. That means some requests are just plain ignored.

Everybody has to go through name check. A "small percentage" get stuck. Right now most of this forum is in "receipt mode". Let us wait for 1 more year to see how many scream " i am stuck in namecheck" . Just ask Indians/Chinese/Russians.

She may have been nice, but she did not give you correct information. I don't know where you "spoke to a very nice IO", but if it is the phone line, they are outsourced phone operators who are poorly trained and do not have access to the information that IO's have.

FBI name check comes back in 2 weeks at the most, if not then it could take 2 months to 5 years or so.

Hard to tell. FBI nor USCIS has ever published demographic information on name checks. Out of 1 million USC and and 1 million or so green cards some of them get stuck in name check. Indians and Chinese don't make up more than 10% of these people yet, most of the name check complaints on the web are from these two groups. It is hard to say if this means these are the most affected groups because many family category immigrants may not be very educated and articulate and may not be petitioning the government and being proactive. So it is very hard to say if one or the other group is more or less affected. You can however look up the below link and form an opinion yourself from the 4000 odd signatures of people stuck in name check:
