September 02, 2020 (1 min read)

USCIS, Aug. 27, 2020

"Effective August 25, 2020, the Asylum Application, Interview, and Employment Authorization for Applicants Final Rule removed the exemption from discretion outlined in 8 CFR 274a.13(a)(1) for asylum applicants seeking employment authorization under 8 CFR 274a.12(c)(8). See 85 FR 38532 (June 26, 2020). Therefore, applications for employment authorization filed on or after August 25, 2020 by applicants for asylum are subject to discretion like other Category C applicants."
