Default United States may be closing international immigration offices

I got a note from RAO That the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), closing offices at Manila Embassy they are in preliminary talks on taking this action but nothing finalized yet.

I remember reading something in the news about this and I also found a couple of articles on it that explains it well.

The jist of this is that now there will be no option for Direct Consular Filing or commonly referred to as DCF anymore. That is the only thing that changed.
