Does EB1 guarantee faster green card processing? My wife’s has given her two options. File for GC now or go to a foreign country for a year and come back in managerial position so expedite GC process. Has anyone done this? I myself am in the usual eb2 boat with priority date 2016. Wondering if the opportunity she’s getting is genuine and a better option

Now that the CDC says no masks needed indoors if vaccinated, is anybody concerned what that means for kids under 12? I’m assuming that the honor system isn’t entirely going to work (I.e., some unvaccinated people will go maskless).

Not that I was taking them that many places, but the occasional grocery store, shoe store, etc. seems riskier now.
