Trump administration introduces green card hurdle – POLITICO

Immigration authorities will require an in-person interview for certain applicants for green cards, a change likely to slow the process of obtaining one.The new requirement, which was confirmed Friday by a spokesman for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, will apply to anyone moving from an employment-based visa to lawful permanent residency. Visa holders who are family members of refugees or people who receive asylum will also be required to undergo an in-person interview when they apply for provisional status, a stage that precedes receiving a green card, according to USCIS.
