Lawsuit to freeze all immigration law deadlines

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

3 April 2020

Our association, AILA, has filed a lawsuit against the USCIS today requesting the court to order the USCIS to freeze all immigration deadlines for:
  • Initial applications
  • Responses to all Requests for Evidence or other responses due on or after March 1, 2020
  • Requests for extension of status, maintenance of status
  • Reprieve from any expiration of status or employment authorization;
  • Maintaining the status quo for purposes of eligibility for protection from removal, work authorization, and immigration benefits from the date the President declared that a national emergency began on March 1, 2020,until 90 days after the emergency officially ends.

Here is a detailed screen recording on the Complaint.  I think our chances of success are very, very good.
