U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced Tuesday that it would reinstate guidance that directs officers to generally give deference to prior USCIS decisions when considering extension requests involving the same parties and facts.
Additional Information: USCIS issued the updated guidance in accordance with President Joe Biden’s Feb. 2 executive order, “Restoring Faith in Our Legal Immigration Systems and Strengthening Integration and Inclusion Efforts for New Americans.” In its announcement, USCIS said affording deference would promote “efficient and fair adjudication of immigration benefits.” The new guidance can be read in its entirety here.
BAL’s Government Strategies team is hosting a webinar on Thursday, April 29, on the latest developments in U.S. immigration, including the impact of today’s announcement from USCIS. More information on the webinar is available here.
