Sept 2 news on Ap from USCIS

Recommended Posts

I can't find the source anymore but I remember I read that once you get paroled back to the States under AP you're considered a parolee and you might not be able to adjust status under I-485. Has that happened to anyone? What are the circumstances of this happening?

"This new development will hamper green card applicants and those companies that employ them because advance parole applicants must remain in the United States until the adjudication of their advance parole application, which is consistently taking 90-120 days. "

 

I don't see why this is suddenly a big problem.

I don't see how this is a new policy? It has been like that since I started reading visajourney years ago. You never ever leave the US without your AP document in hand.

Think about who is new president and the new immigration laws he has created

I've thought about it.....What's your point?  

He is trying to keep as many immigrants out of this country as possible, hoping people will not find out about new laws and violate which creates a money making oppertunity for american lawyers and filings of paperwork fees for GOV.

"By making this adjudication change, USCIS is reverting back to a literal reading of the law as outlined in the Form I-131’s instructions, "

 

As it should be.  It seems to me that a reasonable person would know that traveling out of the country before approval of  AP is abandonment....

And what does that have to do with the AP, the AP hasn't changed, still the same rules as before afaik.

Agreed - this isn't widely impactful. Don't leave the US until your AP is approved.

 

There were a handful of exceptions to the rule above - H-1B, H-4, L-1, L-2, K-3, and V visa holders. These people must now wait for AP to be approved before leaving the US.

You can still AOS upon being admitted as a parolee the same as before. There's no changes to this aspect.
