USCIS Sued For Failing to Issue Interim Work Cards
USCIS regulations generally require the agency to issue employment authorization documents within 90 days of the filing of an I-765 form. When the agency can’t meet the deadline, it is required to provide interim work authorization. That’s a requirement that has been ignored for years by USCIS. Now – finally – the agency has been sued over the issue. The case was filed by the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project in a US District Court on Friday in Seattle. The plaintiffs are seeking class action status. You can find the case here and the NIRP press release here. Good luck to the plaintiffs!
