"Unreasonable Delay" AOS Victory: Pacharne v. DHS

Pacharne v. DHS

"For the reasons stated above, the Court finds that the Plaintiffs have established unreasonable delay on behalf of USCIS. Consequently, the Court has jurisdiction over this matter. The Plaintiff’s request for injunctive relief is GRANTED. USCIS is hereby ordered to adjudicate the Plaintiffs’ I-485 visas applications prior to the expiration of the 2021 fiscal year. Recognizing the short deadline, if USCIS is unable to do so, the Court orders that USCIS reserve five visas for the Plaintiffs from the visa surplus from the 2021 fiscal year."
