A recently leaked internal U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) memorandum to Director Alejandro Mayorkas outlines a laundry list of administrative relief options “to promote family unity, foster economic growth, achieve significant process improvements and reduce the threat of removal for certain individuals present in the United States without authorization.” The memo offers these options as an alternative to Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR), in light of Congressional inaction. Suggested action to foster economic growth includes: partnering with the Department of Commerce to administer the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program; expanding the “dual intent” concept to nonimmigrant categories such as F, O, TN, P and E visa holders; allowing employment authorization for H-4 dependent spouses under certain circumstances; affording workers admitted in nonimmigrant status “a reasonable period of time to conclude their affairs and depart after expiration of their authorized period of employment”; and expanding the availability of the Premium Processing Service. To date, USCIS has not implemented any of the options discussed in the memorandum.
