Doug Rand released these new FAQs about EB greencards yesterday where some dubious language made people think that USCIS wont waste EB greencards this year. I find this unlikely to be true.
USCIS seems to be saying that it has used twice as many green card numbers as last year, but it might be comparing weeks *at this point* in the year (eg 2022 Q3 to weeks in 2021 Q3). If it has really used twice as many for the whole year, no green card waste this year. [David Bier]
Now, a lot of Indians thought it was a good sign but I will ask them to show caution. USCIS isnt an agency known for its integrity or keeping promises. They might as well be lying or fudging data.
If they were serious they would have provided data but all indications are that they simply DO NOT have the capacity to process all greencards and they will waste vast number of them.
