You do realize how hard it would be to air the dubbed version close to the Japanese one right? It is not worth it. They are not skipping it. Get it out of your mind.
Edit: However I'll humor you. If they do air XY near the same time, they still wouldn't skip this arc. There will be important episodes in this arc that are probably unskippable. Take the Clair episode for example. If Iris decides to go to Blackthorn after meeting Clair like some people think, they can't skip the Clair episode. There has never been a true "filler" arc in the anime anyways. Why would this one be one?

To right the countless wrongs of our day, we shine this light of true redemption, that this place may become as paradise. What a wonderful world such would be...
