USCIS has announced that the agency is able to avoid furloughing 70% of their staff and can continue with regular operations until the end of the 2020 fiscal year. As mentioned in our previous post on this topic, USCIS had announced that it was planning to furlough over 13,000 of its staff due to financial restrains and needed financial assistance from Congress to sustain the agency. The new announcement states that it will avoid the furlough, however, as it currently stands, there will be shortfall when it starts the 2021 fiscal year in October. For more information, visit CBS News or USCIS.
