Recently, the Department of Homeland Security has announced a new proposal regarding work permits for illegal aliens with final orders for removal. This rule will make a significant difference for all those who find themselves in this situation, and if you are an alien with a final order for removal against you, you must continue reading and reach out to our knowledgeable New Jersey immigration attorney to learn more about how this rule may affect you. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What are the specifics of the new rule against aliens with final orders for removal?
Essentially, the new rule states that all those who have final orders of removal against them and are temporarily released from custody on an order of supervision will now face limited work permits. Essentially, the Department of Homeland Security states that implementing the new rule will strengthen immigration enforcement and give aliens more of an incentive to return to their native countries. Currently, without the rule, those who are issued final orders of removal but are released from custody have economic incentive to stay here in the United States if they are granted permission to work until their removal date. That being said, DHS has implemented this new rule to give immigrants reason to follow removal orders while simultaneously protect U.S. workers.
If you are within a small subset of aliens that can prove that your removal from the United States is impractical in some way, you may receive discretionary employment authorization. However, the qualifications for this are stringent, and most immigrants will not qualify. If you believe you may qualify, you should speak with our firm today to learn more about how we may help you establish your case.
When is the new rule effective?
Though the new rule is not yet official, DHS states that “written comments on this proposed rulemaking must be submitted on or before December 21, 2020.” Additionally, DHS stated that “when a final rule is published, the changes made by the rule will apply to initial and renewal applications filed on or after the final rule’s effective date.”
