    your EVIDENCE of permanent resident status exipred, not your status. go to the local district office and take your reciept of the N-400 and your passport from your current country of citizneship, the immigration service will give you temporary evidence of status, until your N-400 is adjudicated.

    USCIS Releases Projected Naturalization Processing Times For Local Offices

    Washington—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released today the projected times for local offices to complete processing of applications for citizenship from individuals who filed during the summer of 2007.

    Last July, USCIS received 460,000 applications for naturalization. That was three times the record for any previous month. For the year, USCIS received 1.4 million naturalization applications, almost double the normal annual volume.

    USCIS is hiring and training hundreds of additional immigration officers to adjudicate these cases. The agency is also conducting naturalization interviews on weekends, after normal business hours and in additional locations.

    The processing times listed below provide a sense of how quickly a case may be processed if there are no complicating factors. Still, some cases will take longer to complete for such reasons as:

    an applicant has been asked to submit additional information and their case is pending until they comply, or

    an applicant fails the naturalization test and has 60 days to prepare before they are retested, or

    the FBI name check is still in progress.

    if u have alien N it means u are a legal immigrant. from what u said he is probably awaiting an interviw for his Greencard (permanent resident card), awaiting decision of the immigration judge about his greencard or waiting for his greencard to be issued after approval. PS. dmv does not know his status, thats why u have to prove it when u get your DL. ins does not exit any more, it is USCIS Greencard is a permanent resident card, it HAS alien registration number on it person vith visa is non-immigrant, person with an alien number is an immigrant (or in the process of becoming one)
