Fact: USCIS adjudications are proceeding normally.

Some Media articles originally reported that USCIS may have temporarily suspended the adjudication of certain affected immigration benefits. However, USCIS Acting Director Lori Scialabba sent a memo to all USCIS employees on 2/2/17 stating that Section 3 of the 1/27/17 Executive Order does not affect USCIS adjudication of applications and petitions filed for or on behalf of individuals in the U.S., regardless of nationality.

See the memo attached.
