U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will publish a Temporary Final Rule (TFR) to lengthen the automatic extension of certain Employment Authorization Documents (EADs).
Background: The TFR cleared White House review last week. It will be published in the Federal Register tomorrow, May 4. The prepublication version is available here.
BAL Analysis: The TFR is part of a package of initiatives USCIS announced in March to address processing delays. USCIS said Monday the TFR would help give the agency time to address staffing shortages, implement additional efficiencies and meet Director Ur Jaddou’s recently announced goal of achieving a three-month cycle time for EAD applications by the end of FY 2023. BAL will continue monitoring the implementation of the TFR and other initiatives to improve immigration processing times and will update clients as information becomes available.
