Have been hearing a lot in the news lately about Trump's new policy to conduct interviews for all employment based sponsorship. How accurate is this? I just started my application and am worried that it will take forever to get a GC now.
Employment based GC : you will now need mandatory interview even if you had EB1 extraordinary ability sponsor to prove that you are extraordinary- (this is the same GC used by Justin Bieber so I really don't know how they enforce this)
EB2 (5 yrs experienced dev or masters
Degree plus 3yrs) - this category would waive interview if you already interviewed for H1B multiple times for same company - that waiver is going to be removed forcing you to show up to local USCIS.
Marriage based GC : you always to need interview when you get fiancé/ first 2 year conditional residency - but now onward on the 2nd year they will add 2nd interview.
Relative sponsorship is going to be completely overhauled (aka Anchor baby rule) - this would make it very difficult for bringing in your relatives after you secure PR/citizenship and they are going to add roadblocks on claiming govt assistance like Social Security Medicare for sponsored folk
