Here is why mandamus lawsuits for people in the EB-5 process stuck at the I-829 stage are so powerful in getting a delayed case decided:
8 CFR § 1216.6(5)(b)(1)
“The director must either waive the requirement for an interview and adjudicate the petition or arrange for an interview within 90 days of the date on which the petition was properly filed.”
Given the clear statutory mandate on adjudication timelines, multiple year delays here are unacceptable and actionable.
