***URGENT BREAKING NEWS: I-765 WORK PERMIT CHANGES, EFFECTIVE AS OF TOMORROW, AUGUST 25, 2020, MAKING IT CONSIDERABLY HARDER TO OBTAIN WORK AUTHORIZATION FOR ASYLUM APPLICANTS:

Recent rule changes will make it much harder for asylum seekers to work in the United States . We are summarizing some of the key changes in this post.

Changes to who can get a work permit if you have applied for or are considering applying for asylum (please read ALL OF THE CHANGES below carefully):

• Asylum seekers who cross the border on or after August 25, 2020 and do not present at a port of entry will NOT be eligible for a work permit, unless they meet certain exceptions.

• Asylum seekers who have been in the United States for more than a year and file their asylum application on or after August 25, 2020 (missed the one-year asylum filing deadline) will not be eligible for a work permit, unless and until an immigration judge or USCIS officer finds that they qualify for an exception, or unless they are a child who is designated an “unaccompanied minor.”

• Asylum seekers will have to wait 365 days (one year) after submitting their asylum application to be eligible for a work permit, instead of 180 days (about 6 months), starting on August 25, 2020. So make sure you postmark your applications today if you can, before the changes kick in tomorrow.

• Asylum seekers who have committed or been convicted of certain crimes (DUI, etc.) may not be eligible for work permits.

• Starting on August 25, 2020, the government will no longer stop the asylum clock for specific reasons. Instead, the government will deny applications for work permits if they decide that there are “unresolved applicant-caused delays,” for example if the asylum seeker missed a biometrics appointment.

• Starting on August 25, 2020, the government will charge an $85 fee for biometrics for asylum seekers applying for a work permit.

These are critical and radical changes to EAD (work permit) laws. You may email us at [email protected] if you have any questions related to these rule changes or call us at (818) 244-0310 to leave a message regarding your questions. Email is the preferred method of communication and leads to faster response times.)

BREAKING NEWS: INJUNCTION ISSUED BY NEW YORK FEDERAL JUDGE AGAINST THE NEW PUBLIC CHARGE RULES/FORM I-944 - NO NEED TO INCLUDE FORM I-944 AND THE DOCUMENTS REQUIRED WITH FORM I-944 FOR APPLICATIONS FILED ON OR AFTER JULY 29, 2020 AS LONG AS THIS FEDERAL INJUNCTION IS IN EFFECT THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES:

USCIS states, as follows, on their website:

As long as the July 29, 2020, SDNY decision is in effect, USCIS will apply the 1999 public charge guidance that was in place before the Public Charge Rule was implemented on Feb. 24, 2020 to the adjudication of any application for adjustment of status on or after July 29, 2020. In addition, USCIS will adjudicate any application or petition for extension of nonimmigrant stay or change of nonimmigrant status on or after July 29, 2020, consistent with regulations in place before the Public Charge Rule was implemented; in other words, we will not apply the public benefit condition.

For applications and petitions that USCIS adjudicates on or after July 29, 2020, pursuant to the SDNY injunction, USCIS will not consider any information provided by an applicant or petitioner that relates to the Public Charge Rule, including information provided on the Form I-944, or information on the receipt of public benefits in Part 5 on Form I-539, Part 3 on Form I-539A or Part 6 on Form I-129.

Applicants and petitioners whose applications or petitions are POSTMARKED on or after July 29, 2020, should NOT include the Form I-944 or provide information about the receipt of public benefits on Form I-485, Form I-129, or Form I-539/I-539A. USCIS will issue guidance regarding the use of affected forms. In the interim, USCIS will not reject any Form I-485 on the basis of the inclusion or exclusion of Form I-944, nor Forms I-129 and I-539 based on whether Part 6, or Part 5, respectively, has been completed or left blank.
In any public charge inadmissibility determination, USCIS will consider the receipt of public benefits consistently with prior public charge guidance – the 1999 Interim Field Guidance (PDF) and AFM Ch. 61.1. (PDF, 77.92 KB)

BREAKING NEWS REGARDING IMMEDIATE PUBLIC CHARGE CHANGES AT USCIS AND AT U.S. CONSULATES WORLDWIDE: As of Monday, February 24, 2020, USICS has begun to implement the Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds final rule. Moreover, the U.S. Department of State and U.S consulates worldwide have also begun to implement dramatic changes in public charge assessments, pursuant to the Foreign Affairs Manual [9 FAM 302.8(U)] and have begun to implement Form DS-5540. Meanwhile, USCIS will require most applicants for adjustment of status (except asylees, VAWA applicants, and other limited exempt categories of applicants) to fill out Form I-944 and submit it with the adjustment packets or it may reject your "green card" application. Many forms have been revised and for many of those the prior versions are no longer acceptable. Make sure you use a current version of a form and see which version is acceptable to USCIS by visiting their website or contacting us at Nalbandian Law to make sure that your application packet does not get rejected (especially given that a possible increase in USCIS filing fees is also being discussed by the U.S. government at the present time.)

This new rule will also apply for those who are seeking change of status (B-2 to F-1, for example) or extension of their current status. The instructions to Form I-944 and documentation required are very extensive and detailed as you will find from visiting the USCIS website.

Factors such as age, health, prior receipt of benefits, credit reports, education, English proficiency, debts,relationship to sponsor or joint sponsor, income of applicants in their home countries and in the U.S., bankruptcies, fee waiver requests, private health insurance, etc. may or may not become critical, if not, outcome determinate in many cases. Documentation will most likely be required for all of the above, and simply having a sponsor with income above the 125% poverty threshold will not longer be enough to ensure that a visa/green card is issued, but rather the government will weigh all factors, such as age, health, etc. mentioned above, and decide accordingly whose cases to approve and which individuals are likely to become a public charge in the future.

Nalbandian Law has a group of three seasoned attorneys with over 60 years of combined experience and experienced paralegals all ready to assist you in what will definitely be a very laborious process, given how much documentation may be required from here on out in most cases. It is unclear how each consulate or each USCIS office or officer will implement these changes, but it is going to be more important than ever to make sure your applications are prepared properly and documented properly given these new changes in the laws and that you are advised correctly regarding what past or future financial decisions or public benefits may or may not affect your chances of getting a visa to come to the U.S. or a green card/permanent residence in the U.S. You may contact us at (818) 244-0310 or via email at [email protected] to set up a consultation with one of our seasoned attorneys, all of whom are experts in and exclusively handle only immigration cases of all types and all levels of complexity. Stay tuned in the next few weeks or months as we will continually provide updates and guidance on how best to prepare your applications under these new rules and regulations.
