BAL Analysis: The regulations are in various stages of the rulemaking process, and it normally takes a minimum of three months after a proposed regulation is published before a final rule is issued. Proposed regulations are subject to a public notice and comment period during which members of the public may submit feedback. DHS is required to review and consider the comments before drafting and releasing a final regulation. Employers are encouraged to work with BAL to plan for upcoming changes and to provide comments to DHS to help shape final immigration regulations. BAL is monitoring the regulatory agenda and will provide clients with updates on individual regulations as they progress through the rulemaking process.
