As you may know, three individuals connected with the US Consulate in Ciudad de Juarez, Mexico were gunned down over the weekend. What you may not know, however, is that Juarez (CDJ) is the epicenter of processing for Mexicans who wish to immigrate to the United States. All Mexico green card applicants, whether via an employment or family-based petition, are interviewed at the Juarez consulate. As a result, all inadmissibility waiver petitions adjudicated by USCIS, such as the 601 waiver, are also submitted in Juarez. In response to the recent killings, the USCIS office in CDJ has rescheduled various Juarez waiver appointments.
