DHS Asks DC Circuit Court for 6 Months To Reconsider H-4 Employment Authorization Rule


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has filed a motion (PDF) asking the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to delay proceedings in Save Jobs USA v. DHS for up to 6 months so the agency may reconsider a February 2015 rule, “Employment Authorization for Certain H-4 Dependent Spouses,” that allows certain people maintaining H-4 nonimmigrant status to apply for and receive employment authorization. DHS said it wanted time to actively reconsider whether to revise the H-4 rule through notice-and-comment rulemaking.
