yes it happens.

Happens all the time. What is annoying about it is the fact that you need to now include both in all your communications with USCIS and/or EOIR.


This happens if the applicant does not indicate an existing A number on the second application. You should indicate all A numbers so that the USCIS can consolidate your files, otherwise you may face a delay in your case.
