I am hoping this is true:
"If your visa has been stuck in administrative processing and suddenly on March 3, 2020 you saw a new “ REFUSED” appear on CEAC, then I can explain what’s happening
BIG UPDATE !!!
I’m a lawyer who filed a lot of mandamus cases to help folks get their visas out of administrative processing
Here’s what’s going on
It seems that today the CEAC status for anyone with a case pending administrative processing has been changed to “refused.” After several messages from panicked clients, we noticed that there is new language regarding AP at the bottom of the CEAC now stating that if the case was refused for AP it will be readjudicated.
If the “last updated” date has not changed then it appears not to be an actual refusal, just change in the way the CEAC is showing AP cases. "
