Two sue USCIS over delay in issuance of their green cards


Two men are suing U.S. Citizenship Immigration Services in the U.S. District Court for the NMI for the delay in deciding on their green card applications.

Last Monday, James and Simei Eagan filed a civil lawsuit against the USCIS pro se for allegedly not making any decision on their “green card” application or U.S. permanent residency applications that they submitted back in 2019.

The two, who filed their complaint without a lawyer, are asking the U.S. District Court for the NMI to issue an order compelling USCIS to act and issue a ruling in their case.

“[it] is now well outside of the published case processing times, as reported in our claim statement,” the two allege.
The plaintiffs claim that their green card review is well outside of the USCIS’ published case processing times as it has been over two years.

“Our package was received by USCIS in March of 2019 and our interview was in January of 2020,” they stated in their complaint.
