I have been waiting four months for the case to be filled. How long does it take? Are all case put on hold due to the pending immigration bill.
Removal proceedings' timeline vary by the federal districts, number of cases, availability of the Immigration Judges and recent federal sequestration budgetary cuts. Thus, you wait may translate into years.
Also, there is no hold for any removal case "due to the pending immigration bill" as its entire passage is irrelevant or not even assured. Please invest in a good immigration counsel to protect your presence in the U.S. properly.
Regardless of which agency - USCIS, CBP, or ICE is filing the papers to place you into removal proceedings the process takes as long as that agency wants. The question is why you want to be placed into removal proceedings when the result could be your removal from the United States? If you are seeking a benefit that can only be granted by an Immigration Judge or a review of a denial by USCIS then you may wish to have an attorney help find out what the delay is.
