On June 5, 2018, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it had begun issuing redesigned Certificates of Citizenship and Naturalization on the same day. The USCIS stated that notwithstanding the new certificate designs, “the process of applying for and receiving [these certificates] has not changed.” Those who already have Certificates of Naturalization or Citizenship do not have to renew them. Previously issued certificates will continue to be accepted as proof of citizenship.

In general, a nonimmigrant student in M1 status is not eligible to change his or her status to F1. However, there is a limited exception from this prohibition for a nonimmigrant student who was mistakenly classified as M1 or F1. In this article, we will examine the rules prohibiting change of status from M1 to F1 student and the limited exception. In addition, we will discuss the general prohibition on change of status to M1 if it is determined that the applicant is pursuing the change of status solely in order to qualify for a subsequent change of status to H.

Second, an individual may seek a change from a nonimmigrant classification to that of a student from within the United States. In this article, we will examine general rule for change of nonimmigrant status to either F1 or M1.

On May 17, 2018, Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued an important immigration precedent decision in Matter of Castro-Tum, 27 I&N Dec. 271 (A.G. 2018). In the decision, the Attorney General concluded that immigration judges and the Board of Immigration Appeals lack general administrative closure authority, and may only grant administrative closure in the limited circumstances explicitly outlined in the Attorney General regulations or required by court-ordered settlement agreement. For the large number of cases that were administratively closed without authorization, the Attorney General provided that they shall be recalendared upon motion by either party. This article will serve as an index for our articles on Matter of Castro-Tum and related decisions and issues. We will update this index with new articles on the issues as we publish them.

On June 20, 2018, President Donald Trump issued an Executive Order titled “Affording Congress an Opportunity to Address Family Separation”. President Trump issued the executive order after objections to family separations that occurred as a result of an interagency policy to refer every illegal entry and reentry case for prosecution and to prosecute such cases. President Trump’s new executive order constitutes an attempt to shift the administration’s policy toward family detention. However, as we will see, there are numerous legal questions as to whether the shift will be successful. In this article, we will examine President Trump’s Executive Order and what it may mean going forward.

On June 6, 2018, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) issued a published decision in the Matter of A-C-M-, 27 I&N Dec. 303 (BIA 2018). In this decision, the Board adopted an expansive definition of the “material support” inadmissibility ground in section 212(a)(3)(B)(i)(VIII) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), which also constitutes a bar to certain immigration benefits such as asylum, withholding of removal, and cancellation of removal. The Board held that the term “material support” does not entail a quantitative requirement, that is, it covers any action that “has a logical and even reasonably foreseeable tendency to promote, sustain, or maintain the [terrorist] organization, even if only to a de minimis degree.” Come to http://myattorneyusa.com to find more information. #immigrationLaw #ImmigrationLawyer #USImmigration #ImmigrationAttorney #lawyer #immigration #Immigrants

On June 11, 2018, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released an important update titled “Update to Form I-797 Receipt Notices for Form I-751 and Form I-829.” On June 11, 2018, such petitioners “will receive a Form I-797 receipt notice that can be presented with their Form I-551, Permanent Resident Card [(“Green Card”)], as evidence of continued status for 18 months past the expiration date on their Permanent Resident Card.” Under prior policy, the Form I-797 was evidence of status 12 months past the expiration date of a Permanent Resident Card for those seeking the removal of conditions. The USCIS stated that it is changing the policy from 12 months to 18 months due to increased processing times for the Form I-751 and Form I-829.

In this article, we will cover the Attorney General’s decision to not delegate administrative closure authority and his rules for cases that were administratively closed without authority, in addition to his decision to affirm the BIA’s decision in the instant matter.

This article presupposes that you have seen our first article in the series and are familiar with the case background and issues presented. In this article, we will discuss the Attorney General’s reasoning for concluding that neither the statutes nor regulations provide for general administrative closure authority.

In the PM, the USCIS takes position that tenant occupancy is not a reasonable methodology to support economically or statistically valid forecasting tools in the context of establishing that an EB5 petitioner under the EB5 regional center program is complying with the job creation requirement under section 203(b)(5) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Accordingly, the USCIS announced that it is rescinding its previous policy that it set forth in a 2012 Guidance Memorandum (GM)-602-0001 on December 20, 2012. The USCIS’s new PA updates the USCIS Policy Manual (PM) at 6 USCIS-PM 6.2. In this post, we will briefly examine the new guidance.
