J. Senmartin, Esq. Ramona is a US Citizen who petitioned her

FOR Guillermo J. Senmartin, Esq.Hello, Ramona is a US Citizen who petitioned her son and daughter back in 1995 when she was a Permanent Resident. She had to let the NVC process go because at the time of the Consulate interview she could not provide a Sponsor. Years went by and now she has a Sponsor. the son and daughter are adults and still live in Mexico (always have). She submitted an I-130 to "Request to Recapture Priority Date(s)" for both for the year 1995. She received the I-797 Notice of Receipt of Payment, and it stated in the "priority date" section/field a date of 'March 7, 2017'. Does this mean that USCIS has already determined that her "Request to Recapture Priority Date(s)" for both for 1995 has been denied? or is USCIS still determining if they will grant her request to Recapture Priority Date(s)" for both for the year 1995? thank you.
