    Answered . A Senator or Representative is a good option but there are three faster and better options:

    1. Formal Letter Inquiry by an attorney
    2. USCIS Ombudsman in Washington, D.C.
    3. AILA Liason inquiry

    Feel free to give me a call if you'd like to discuss this further.

    Answered . One suggestion would be to contact your local US Senator or Representative's office and see if a staffer would be willing to contact the USCIS on your behalf. He/she may be able to find out what is going on and how much more of a wait there will be. I hope that this is helpful to you.
