Below is the official statement from Fabiano Caruana regarding the 2013 US Championship:

There now appear to be some FIDE Zonal issues regarding my participation.

Yesterday, I received an e-mail from Zonal President Francisco Guadalupe of the USCF stating that they “need to check with FIDE” and that they “hope to have an answer within a couple of days.”

Whatever the outcome, I do wish the USCF and the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis the very best for their upcoming 2013 US Championship.”
