  • The COVID-19 Pandemic and its Impact on USCIS Operations;
  • Issuance and Coordination of Notices to Appear (NTAs);
  • Petitions for Removal of Conditions for Conditional Permanent Residents;
  • The Medical Disability Waiver Process;
  • An Update on the Continuing Complications of USCIS’ Digital Strategy; and
