USCIS immigration news has something new again.
On August 19, 2019, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) made a significant addition to the USCIS Policy Manual. As per the policy guidance issued by USCIS, it is at the sole discretion of the USCIS to grant employment authorization to the parolees among the foreign nationals that enter the U.S.
Usually, in the U.S. foreign nationals can be paroled on two grounds – either for a significant public benefit or for humanitarian reasons that are of an urgent nature.
As per the USCIS, a foreign national will not be entitled for any employment authorization simply based on being a parolee. Any foreign national allowed to enter and live in the U.S. on humanitarian or public benefit grounds will have to establish his/her eligibility for employment authorization.
If eligible, that parolee will have to apply for the authorization for U.S. work permit.
As per the USCIS, every case will be considered on its own, on a case-by-case basis. The specific circumstances and particular facts of the case in question will be the determining factor in the USCIS finding the need to exercise discretion.
The reason behind this policy guidance is said to be the need felt by the USCIS for addressing the perceived loopholes in its immigration system.
This will not be applicable to those foreign nationals that enter the U.S. as part of the International Entrepreneur Rule.
