Is it easier for USCIS to deny applications now?

Is it easier for USCIS to deny applications now?

AUGUST 16, 2018
USCIS issues two new policy memos on NTAs (Notice to Appear) and RFEs (request for evidence) and NOIDs (notice of intent to deny). The NTA memo from USCIS dated June 23, 2018 implements President Trumps Executive Order, “Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States.” This order directs agencies to remove aliens (including those who are deportable or inadmissible) from the U.S. without exceptions. Those who have been: 
  • Convicted of criminal offense;
  • Charged with a criminal offense and hasn’t been resolved;
  • Committed an act considered to be a chargeable criminal offense;
  • Engaged in fraud/willful misrepresentation in their application;
  • Abused any governmental program of public benefits;
  • Subject to final order of removal from the U.S. and have not departed the U.S.; or
  • Otherwise pose a risk to public safety or national security.
The RFE and NOID Policy memo is another problematic step to overcome for employers and employees/applicants making it easier for officers to refuse visa applications without issuing an RFE or a NOID (notice of intent to deny). This new memo will reverse the previous guidance that allowed officers to deny a case without issuing either an RFE or NOID if they believed that there was “no possibility” the deficiency as found by the officer could be corrected by the applicant or the petitioner. In other words: the officers will now deny cases without providing an opportunity to correct any deficiency. This memo will go into effect September 11, 2018 primarily affecting employment and family-based petitions. It will refuse the legal right for the applicant, petitioner or requester the benefit to submit further evidence to establish eligibility.
Together these two memos will give the beneficiary in employment and family-based cases that have been denied no legal status in the U.S. and result in the issuance of an NTA. Professionals at C.T. Lee & Associates continuously monitor how these memos are being implemented and how they affect individuals and businesses. Call C.T. Lee & Associates to schedule a consultation with us to discuss advising on strategy for your future.

移民局现在连RFE都可以不用发就把我的案件拒绝了?
移民局发布了两份关于NTA(出庭通知),RFE(证据请求)和NOID(拒绝意向通知)的新政策备忘录。移民局于2018年6月23日发布的NTA备忘录实施了川普总统“加强美国内部的公共安全”的行政命令。该命令指示各相关机构将有以下情况的外国人驱逐出境,没有例外,其情况包括:
– 曾被判刑事犯罪;
– 曾被指控犯有刑事犯罪并还未得到解决;
– 曾犯下被视为可以被指控为刑事罪行的行为;
– 曾在其签证申请中从事欺诈/故意虚假陈述;
– 曾滥用任何政府公共福利计划;
– 被驱逐出境后滞留未离境;
– 以及其存在会对公共安全或国家安全构成风险。
RFE和NOID政策备忘录是雇主和雇员/签证申请人要克服的另一个容易产生问题的步骤,这将导致官员更容易选择直接拒绝签证申请而非发RFE或NOID(意图拒绝通知)。这份新备忘录将推翻以前的指导原则,允许官员在没有发出RFE或NOID的情况下拒绝签证申请,如果他们认为该申请“没有可能通过”,那么申请人将没有机会纠正该申请的疏漏。换句话说:官员现在可以不提供任何纠正其申请疏漏的机会而直接拒绝申请。该备忘录将于2018年9月11日生效,主要影响就业和以家庭为基础的申请。它将拒绝向申请人提供进一步证据以证明其资格的合法机会。
这两份备忘录将影响其申请人的合法身份,并导致被签发NTA。李国宇联合律师所的律师将持续关注这些备忘录的实施以及它们对个人和企业的影响。致电李国宇联合律师所,安排与我们商谈,共同为您的未来提供战略建议。
