U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently issued policy guidance clarifying how officers will make decisions regarding employment authorization to foreign nationals who are paroled into the U.S.
BAL Analysis: The guidance does not necessarily represent a new policy, as decisions to grant employment authorization to parolees have always been discretionary. However, the guidance, which is now part of the USCIS policy manual, clarifies that USCIS officers will not issue employment authorization to parolees as a category or right, but will make discretionary decisions by considering individual facts on a case-by-case basis.
