WASHINGTON, DC - The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) welcomed the publication of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) final rule expanding the class of individuals who are eligible to apply for a provisional unlawful presence waiver. AILA provided comments on the draft rule published in the Federal Register in July of 2015. The rule will take effect on August 29, 2016.
William A. Stock, President of AILA said, "We welcome this final rule and the expansion of the provisional waiver process to include all individuals who are statutorily eligible for an unlawful presence waiver. As we have done since 2013 when the process commenced, AILA will continue to work with our 14,000 members and with USCIS to ensure that the program lives up to its intended spirit: to promote family unity and lessen the hardships associated with lengthy and unnecessary separation of American families. The new rule uses a proven procedure that efficiently uses government resources to decide waivers that Congress clearly authorized in the statute, regardless of the legal category in which family members are immigrating, and is an important step forward."
