Severe USCIS case processing delays are causing hardship for millions of individuals, families, and American businesses throughout the country. Among other impacts, such delays prolong the separation of families, make U.S. businesses less competitive, endanger vulnerable protection seekers, and stall the full integration of aspiring citizens. Data from AILA's policy briefreveals that USCIS's overall average case processing time surged by 46 percent from FY 2016 to FY 2018 and by 91 percent from FY 2014 to FY 2018. This past fiscal year, the agency's overall backlog of delayed cases exceeded 5.69 million. The evidence, moreover, shows that USCIS's own misguided policies and practicesare core drivers of backlog growth. Altogether, this nationwide slowdown demonstrates USCIS's failure to meet Congress's mandate to efficiently administer our legal immigration system.

When applying for a K-1 fiancé(e) visa, being gay can add undue hardship to the process. Generally speaking, to qualify for a K-1 visa, one partner must be a U.S. citizen, both parties legally free and intend to marry, and that the partners need to have met each other in person within the two year preceding the filing of the I-129F petition. The process further requires that the foreign fiancé(e) file for a visa at their local embassy.
