AILA Asylum and Refugee Committee Note: The imposition of the biometrics fee (currently $85.00) for both initial and renewal (c)(8) EAD applicants is entirely distinct from the preliminary injunction ordered in Immigrant Legal Resource Center, et al. v. Chad Wolf, et al. on September 29, 2020. In Immigrant Legal Resource Center v. Wolf, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California enjoined the final rule regarding the scheduled fee increase for many USCIS forms, which was to go into effect on October 2, 2020. However, the imposition of the biometrics fee for both initial and renewal (c)(8) EAD applicants has not been enjoined and applicants must now either pay the biometrics fee or provide proof of their membership in ASAP or CASA. Accordingly, there is incentive for all (c)(8) EAD applicants to join ASAP or CASA, not just initial applicants.
