EAD Rules Fully Vacated - No Appeal in AsylumWorks v. Mayorkas

Keren Zwick, Director of Litigation at the National Immigrant Justice Center, reports: "I wanted to let folks know that on Friday (4/8) we learned from the government that it would not file an appeal in AsylumWorks v. Mayorkas. This means, happily, that the EAD Rules that delayed and in some cases denied access to EADs for asylum seekers are fully vacated. The vacatur applies to both the 30-day adjudication rule and the larger rule that had more than a dozen changes to EAD eligibility for asylum seekers. Thanks to everyone for their patience during the appeal period, and congratulations to the huge community of folks who worked on this issue, both in the AsylumWorks case and in the Casa de Maryland case. Stay tuned for future guidance including about potential changes to the form, and next steps for asylum seekers applying for EADs."
