USCIS Requesting Public to Comment on New Rule
USCIS needs user comments or opinions from concerned public about a proposal to expand eligibility for temporary exemptions of inadmissibility by illegal presence in the U.S. This rule would expand eligibility to foreign nationals to qualify for an immigrant visa and waiver the fact that they are in the country unlawfully. These changes are proposed in the interest of family unity and as a means to improve customer service.
This proposed rule was published in the Federal Register on July 22, 2015, giving the public until September 21, 2015 or 60 days to submit comments. The instructions for making comments are available in the notice. The date that this rule would take effect will also be announced in the Federal Register,
Under this new rule the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service can grant foreign citizens a temporary exemption to apply for an immigrant visa and for a waiver of inadmissibility due to unlawful presences in the U.S. The new regulation also includes modifying the assessment on qualifying family members for reasons of extreme hardship to include lawful permanent resident spouses and parents.
USCIS recommends the public not to submit applications requesting this provision of unlawful presence until this new ruling takes effect and the filing date is published. USCIS may deny any application sent before the approved date.
