AILA Challenges USCIS’s Plan to Stop Accepting Current Editions of Certain Forms Despite Failing to Publish New Editions

Note: on Friday, October 11, 2019, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia issued an order in AILA’s lawsuit to halt the new forms and capricious deadline, taking note of the New York and California injunctions granting the same relief AILA requested, and ordering the parties to advise the court if and when any of those orders are terminated.

AILA filed suit in United States District Court for the District of Columbia to ensure a workable transition over to new forms as the administration seeks to implement the public charge rule. The complaint seeks to immediately enjoin U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) from moving forward with its arbitrary and capricious plan to stop accepting the current versions of Forms I-485, I-129, I-539, I-864, and I-864EZ, if postmarked on or after October 15, 2019, despite having failed to publish necessary revised and new forms.
