USCIS Announces New Stricter Policy for Adjudications of Work Permission Applications, Immigrant Visa Petitions and Other Applications for Immigration Benefits
On July 13, 2018, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) revoked a 2013 policy to regularly give applicants for work authorization or other immigration benefits an opportunity to respond to a written Request for Evidence (RFE) before denying such applications or petitions. The new policy is expected to lead to an increase in outright denials of many applications and petitions. Critics described it as a return to the “culture of no” that characterized much of the immigration decision-making in the years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the U.S. The effective date of the new policy is September 11, 2018.
