5:51 am
immigration says we are going to deport you and they don't know the laws, so then there is a rush to try to get for a loolks who did not do that before, are now doing that. a lot of other services like the san francisco o.c.a., the office of civi engagement, all the collaborative effort is to better serve the san francis i want to share with you why it's so complicated, so, government has greater access to petitioners and record electronically, and more scrutiny on the clients, on the background, more time for attorneys to potentially address the issues, because of , haveto doe ed information act, research and background. there are a lot more increase in refusing or denying disability waiver for our adults, elder, and rsequire more detail. the failure to more complex case, with ore s ple cases areea,
5:52 am
