Update on AILF's Legal Action Concerning the Visa Bulletin Issue
July 9, 2007

July 9, 2007

As many have already heard, AILF's Legal Action Center is preparing litigation against USCIS and DOS regarding the I-485 / Visa Bulletin developments last week.

The lawsuit will be filed soon. It will be filed as a class action. We expect that one or more of the proposed classes of plaintiffs will include individuals who do not apply for adjustment of status in July 2007, but who were statutorily eligible to apply and would have applied in July 2007 but for the DOS and USCIS actions.

A new prospective plaintiff questionnaire, to help AILF identify plaintiffs in this new category, and updated FAQ will be posted soon.
