Default IV Action Item: File FOIA request with USCIS

IV has been working with officials in DHS (not USCIS) to find the exact number of AOS applications pending sorted by priority date, per country, per category.

Even though the need for requested information is clear and DHS officials agreed to push USCIS for such information, they clearly told IV to demonstrate the need by filing FOIA requests. A request from IV is already pending, but the more the number of requests, the more prioritized this request will become. There are approximately 65,000 FOIA requests pending in Track2 of USCIS queue.

FOIA can be filed with USCIS either by using G-639 or by writing a simple letter. Our request will not fit the G-639 format and a simple notarized letter will do. I am attaching a sample document that members can download from Google docs and replace the fictitious John Doe information with theirs and mail out the letter to the address in the letter.

If you are really information hungry, this is your chance to get it.

(1) Download attachment

(2) Replace John Doe information with yours & print it

(3) Notarize it and fax/mail it. Notarizing your request prevents from frivolous rejection

Fax number (816) 350-5785. Make sure you get your confirmation if you fax it.

Nothing you should worry about. Its just that my upload along with postwas failing. Hence I uploaded it on megaupload. Click the word Megaupload or Google docs in my post above and download the template.

This is exactly what we need. Let us get going on this people.
Nixstor, a suggestion ... maybe add a poll to this so we can track how many have sent this letter.

People who want a copy of their LCA/I-140, please send that in before this. This will create a real large queue and you won't ever get your copy.

Do we all need to do this ?

All I am suggesting is that people who need copies of their LCA/I-140 should apply for that now before the queue gets saturated with this request.

Given this economy, there is a good chance that a whole lot of us will need to use EAD and do a AC-21. Not all of us have our job descriptions and O*net codes to do a successful AC-21 application.

And my question is: will sending multiple copies of this make any difference ?? How many copies are really required to get their attention??

Yes, copies of this request from different individuals is going to make a difference. we need to show that the information being requested is needed by a lot of people out there. Just in case if you are wondering, Your application and your FOIA request have got nothing to do with each other.

So if I need a copy of my LCA/I-140, and I file a FOIA request, does that go in a different queue ?

You need your LCA you file FOIA with Department of Labor. NOT USCIS

There are many threads that discuss how to file FOIA to get LCA/Job Description on your permanent labor certification. Please search the forums. Lets NOT digress from the main topic here.

You need your original I-140 application filed on your behalf. File form G-884 with USCIS.
