As many of our readers and clients are aware, the severe delay in processing H4 Petitions has been a nightmare for many people whom rely upon their status being approved within a reasonable amount of time. AILA’s President issued a statement on this issue in relation to the lawsuit filed against the DHS.
“The delays that H-4 and L-2 nonimmigrants are facing needlessly place families in financial limbo. DHS has the legal tools and authority to grant work authorization to impacted individuals whose financial security is hanging in the balance, and it should immediately begin to use those tools to provide solutions. DHS can and must revoke the unnecessary biometrics requirements for H-4 and L-2 nonimmigrants, provide automatic work authorization while DHS processes EAD renewal requests, and allow EAD applicants to file their renewal applications sooner than 180 days prior to EAD expiration to prevent gaps in work authorization.”
