I have read some responses that indicate this. I applied for naturalization in January 2017, Had my Biometrics appt in mid February. Now its crickets, when I check USCIS it says I am in line waiting for interview appt. Is there a slowdown because of Trump administration? How long is it supposed to take?

Nothing todo with President Trump but with decades of delays in many States and local offices. Some districts move faster than others.

Yes. They were pushing them through pre election and are slowing down now to carry the backlog of adjustment of status/greencard apps

^ Thats true but that was Obama trying to get more votes but Obama forgot that not all new citizens will vote for Democrats.

When a family member of mine became a citizen a person trying to sign up any new citizens was shocked to see how many didn't want to sign up with the Democrats.

I felt it is wrong to have someone from a party standing inside USCIS building conducting that kind of work.

It depends where you are located, I did my citizenship through Detroit, applied in May and eventually took my oath the following February.

My office is the Wheaton, MD service center. MD is a high immigrant area outside of Washington proper. I want to plan a vacation and my life is on hold while waiting for this process to complete. Yes the office is usually packed. Three years ago when I renewed my green card, the room was filled with Latino. This year, I noticed it was mainly Chinese people and African. I hope Latino's have not been scared off.

My wife applied in October 2015 (Fairfax, VA) and took the oath in May 2016. Relax. You're still on schedule.

Maybe they already finished their status or liked their home country better.

On top of that you make it sound like the US is discriminating against Latino's but if you see how many Spanish talking people are in this country with hate crimes hardly mentioned than it is very biased to bring this up.


Keep in mind that for some visas there are quotas per country.

If you did your biometrics in Wheaton, you must live in Maryland. So you will be going through the Baltimore field office, which currently is processing naturalization applications filed Sept. 6, 2016. You can monitor how close they are coming to your filing date here: https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/processTimesDisplay.do

scroll down to the bottom of the page where it says "Field Office" and select Baltimore from the drop-down menu. Once you hit enter, that should bring up the processing time chart for that office. You want to watch "N-400".

I know a person and an error was made in March in the Greencard which at USCIS expense will be replaced as clearly the dates are an error. This person called USCIS this week and was told it can take another 7 months due to the backlog and that's just for reprinting the correct green card!
