The Trump administration has been continuously updating various regulations impacting changes in the immigration law. The Department of Homeland Security recently announced its decision to postpone the final decision on the H4 EAD rule till June 2018.
The administration was expected to announce its decision about the final rule including the changes to the existing H4 EAD rule.
Initially the rule was expected to be published in the federal register in February. However, it has now been postponed till June 2018.
In the recent court hearing in the case Save Jobs USA versus DHS, the chief of the foreign workers division at the US Citizenship and Immigration Services, Kevin J Cummings stated that the proposed rule change entails a new "economic analysis" which is likely to take several weeks. He also stated that "significant revisions" have been made to the draft proposed rule already.
Additional details were not shared by Mr. Cummings. However, the new rule is expected to be based on the Trump administration’s policy of Buy American, Hire American.
For now the H4 EAD beneficiaries can breathe a sigh of relief. However, we have to wait as the uncertainty revolving around the final rule continues to loom over.
