National Interest Waiver and Outstanding Researcher Petitions Approved

This past month my office has obtained approvals for a National Interest Waiver (an EB-2 immigrant visa classification) and an Outstanding Researcher Petition (an EB-1 immigrant visa classification).  What is most amazing about these approvals is how quickly they came – within one month without premium processing!  Is the economy that poor that USCIS suddenly has time on its hands to approve cases in record speed?  There always is a silver lining.
