DHS Secretary Ratifies Rule Removing 30-Day EAD Processing Requirement for Asylum Applicants

DHS Secretary Mayorkas ratified prior delegable actions and decisions regarding the approval, issuance, signing, and publication of the Removal of 30-Day Processing Provision for Asylum Applicant-Related Form I-765 Employment Authorization Applications rulemaking.

Editorial note: This ratification covers only the timeline repeal and not the broader rule restricting asylum EAD eligibility. It does not affect the preliminary injunction in CASA v. Wolf (now Mayorkas). Additional updates from class counsel in that case are forthcoming. Please check our webpage on Resources Related to Lawsuit Challenging New DHS Asylum EAD rules.
