A federal judge in the district court for the District of Columbia concluded Monday that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has legal authority to allow foreign students to work in the U.S. after graduation under Optional Practical Training (OPT).
BAL Analysis: This is a significant victory, as it upholds the validity of the OPT program and the STEM extension. Current rules governing these programs remain in place. The judge is expected to issue a final ruling explaining his reasoning in the next 60 days. WashTech will likely appeal the ruling. BAL will continue to provide updates on important developments relating to OPT.
