The backlog that has been felt by both the Asylum Offices in the US and the Immigration Courts have now extended to USCIS offices. Now, we are witnessing for the first time that USCIS is processing applications beyond their normal processing times. Moreover, we are witnessing that USCIS is now receiving applications without providing receipts or fingerprints. The system is now broken. Who do we blame? The volume of applications, the lack of funding, the lack of sufficient manpower to handle the crisis or ALL.
