  1. USCIS NTA MEMORANDUM IMPLEMENTATION DELAYED

    by , 07-30-2018 at 05:18 PM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Maria Schneider

    On July 30, the USCIS announced that it will delay the implementation of a recent memo regarding the issuance of Notices To Appear (NTAs) to foreign national who fall out of status when their immigration petition is denied. The issuance of an NTA initiates deportation proceedings.

    On June 28, 2018 the USCIS issued a new policy memorandum which instructed USCIS Officers to initiate deportation proceedings for those foreign nationals’ whose immigration petition was denied after their I-94 card had already expired. Generally, when the USCIS creates a new policy the USCIS delays implementation of the policy until a guidance memo can be issued. The June 28, 2018 memo did not give a date specific on which the policy would be implemented, meaning it would be implemented immediately.

    Today's announcement indicates the new NTA policy not be implemented until the USCIS guidance is issued. The announcement also confirms that USCIS is not currently initiating deportation proceedings for those whose immigration petitions are denied after their I-94 cards expire.

    For more information on this new policy please join us on Wednesday, August 1, for a teleconference on this new policy and other updates from the USCIS: REGISTER

    MU Law Analysis (all references are to Table A unless noted)


    All Other: The EB-2 has been current for many years. The EB-3 is also current and is expected to remain current for the foreseeable future. The EB-1 retrogression is temporary and is because of the reasons listed on the above-linked FAQ.

    China (mainland-born): China EB-3 (Chart A) moved favorably by 18 months. This move was done to spur filings in this category before the end of the fiscal year.

    India: As with China, the retrogression of India EB-1 probably means that there will not be a forward progression until after October 1, 2018. EB-3 continued its steady progress, improving by to months. India EB-3 should continue to steady progress into FY 2019.

    Mexico: Mirrors All Other in analysis.

    Philippines: Phils EB-3 improved by 6 months, which is terrific, but probably temporary. The DOS is trying to encourage filings in this category before the end of the fiscal year. The EB-1 retrogression is of no consequence, and is simply reflective of the fact that all countries' EB-1 demand was higher than expected in FY2018. It will be Current in October 2018.
