  1. Automatic Extension Period of Work Permits for Certain Applicants Release Date 05/03/2022 WASHINGTON—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced a Temporary Final Rule (TFR) that increases the automatic extension period for employment authorization and Employment Authorization Documents (EADs), available to certain EAD renewal applicants, to up to 540 days. The increase, which will be effective immediately on May 4, 2022, will help avoid gaps in employment for noncitizens with pending EAD renewal applications and stabilize the continuity of operations for U.S. employers.
  2. Finally got approved this week almost exactly 24 months after filing (at the San Francisco Office). Approval was one day after the interview. Thanks be to God! We filed a Writ of Mandamus in December. That appeared to speed up the combo card renewal and the scheduling for an interview although they waited until one day after the legal response period to do so (61 long days). The attorney for USCIS in Missouri (NBC) filed a Motion to Dismiss saying 35.5 months (upper limit of SF waiting times, which previously was 44 months) was a reasonable period to wait before filing a mandamus! We counter-argued and a judge is reviewing that. I found it ridiculous that the wait time in SF for an interview should be equal to or longer than the wait period (3 years) to acquire citizenship – not to mention the gross inequality of people's results and paths to citizenship depending upon their geography.
  3. I had a friend in college who was quite short and he would buy clothes from the children’s section, which often would fit him very well.
