I just got a reply from USCIS
The status of this service request is:
Recently, you or your representative contacted USCIS concerning your Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, to notify us that you believe your case is outside of our normal processing time. Below is a summary of what we found and how the issue has been or may be resolved.
USCIS makes every effort to process cases within the projected time frames and in the order in which they were received; however, your case has not cleared all required security checks at this time. Until we receive the results of these security checks, we cannot move forward on your case.
We cannot predict when we will receive the results of these security checks. Please be assured that we will make every effort to make a decision in your case as soon as the security checks are complete.
We hope this information is helpful to you.
Is anyone else in the same situation.
How long does the security check take to complete?
