New Rule Regarding Asylum Seekers' EAD Applications

DHS finalizes the proposed rule regarding processing asylum seekers' EAD applications today. The new rule, effective August 21, will have two main provisions:

(1) DHS no longer has to adjudicate I-765 Application for Employment Authorization Document filed by asylum seekers within 30 days; and
(2) Asylum seekers may file for their EAD extensions as early as 180 days before expiration (used to be 90 days).

This rule was proposed by DHS last year.
