On 2/21/19, AILA sent a letter to USCIS Director L. Francis Cissna requesting USCIS to delay the 3/11/19 effective date of revised Form I-539 and new Form I-539A and adopt a 90-day grace period until 6/9/19 to continue to accept the current version of Form I-539 and Supplement A (12/23/16 edition). AILA also requested that USCIS suspend the mandatory biometric appointment requirement, and corresponding biometric fee, for all I-539 applicants until the regulated public has had a meaningful opportunity to comment on this new requirement.
