The Spring Regulatory Agenda of the Trump Administration was recently published and re-confirms the earlier announced plans for reform, but with updated timelines.

Be aware that no changes are happening TODAY. These are just expected proposals for change that could happen in the future.

  • DHS plans a proposal to remove from its regulations certain H-4 spouses of H-1B nonimmigrants as a class of aliens eligible for employment authorization (in other words, they plan to propose a new regulation to undo the H-4 EAD regulation). Expect a proposed rule in JUNE 2018.  YOU CAN CONTINUE TO FILE H-4 EADs!
  • DHS plans to propose to establish an electronic registration program for cap-subject H-1B filings.
