The Trump administration remains vigilant in changing U.S. employment-based immigration policy, leaving myriad challenges for President-elect Biden on inauguration day.
USCIS extends the policy allowing employers to accept an EAD approval notice rather than an EAD card as evidence of work authorization until February 1.
USCIS has increased Premium Processing fees. Attorney Brianna Thompson writes about the new fee schedule.
New DHS and DOL regulations will change the requirements for H-1B eligibility and result in increased prevailing wage requirements for H-1B, H-1B1, E-3, and green card sponsorship.
On October 1, 2020, President Trump signed H.R. 8337, which will continue to fund the federal government and also potentially significantly changes USCIS Premium Processing service.
