SAVE JOBS USA filed a lawsuit against DHS H4 EAD rules – Breaking Bad News!

Save Jobs USA filed a lawsuit regarding H4 EAD rules against DHS. Please read lawsuit. Note this is only a declaratory judgment lawsuit, the lawsuit does not interrupt the process at this point but it might actually hinder the possibility of filing. As such until further notice, we need to assume that the May, 26, 2015 H4 EAD rules still stand.
SJUSA complaint

ALERT:
Until further notice from the court, we should not assume that the law is not going forward. We are sure the government and many organizations are going to fight this lawsuit. We need all your attention, to make sure that we have all the good people on our side. Our law firm also does not agree that the lawsuit has merits because it is in the full executive power of the government to amend the H1B laws to allow a work permit to the H4 visa holders. In addition, this law was subject to public comments and passed with flying colors. We pray the court to understand the pain of the H4 visa holders and not to let the “anti-immigrants” feeling take over this great country.

How will ICE deal with Herguan University in case of a close down?

On April 10, 2015,

“The former chief executive of Herguan University has pleaded guilty to visa fraud — and while the school remains open, it could soon lose its ability to recruit foreign students with the promise of student visas.” (Santa Cruz Sentinel)

We all remember the effect of Tri Valley University (TVU) and the aftermath on the F1 visa students. For years, our law firm has advocated for the rights of students and we believe that schools which abuse foreign students by over promising should not actually be allowed to operate.  We actually are grateful to the Department of Homeland Security that unlike TVU situation, the government did not go after the students and then dealt with the school.

Nonetheless bear in mind that the government will definitely probe into many of the foreign students visas who have or had attended Herguan. To this end,  we have some very important information or tips for the Herguan University students who are on F1 visa:

  1. Make sure your visa is secure, it is recommended to transfer if possible before the SEVIS is cancelled or revoked. Note talk to an experience lawyer before you move;
  2. Make sure if you are using Herguan as a credential that the USCIS does accept the school transcripts and diplomas.  In other words, DHS will recognize such diplomas to apply for an H1B visa or a permanent residence;
  3. If you are changing status to H4 visa, please have a lawyer handle the case because there will definitely be a lot of questioning and request for evidence (RFE) covering a number of issues including attendance, and complicity etc. and;
  4. Should you be contacted by a ICE or FBI (special agent), please contact a lawyer to help. Note that if no criminal charges, you might not be entitled to a free lawyer. It is recommended to retain counsel prior to speaking to the authorities.

The above are just few tips and cannot be substituted for legal advices. We recommend you call us at 510 742 5887, should you have any student visa (F1 visa) issues and are with Herguan University or any similar university or school.

Unlike last year for H1B 2015, it seems that the USCIS has proceeded quite fast in the 2016 H1B lottery selection and has even  started processing the premium  cases.  As expected, we have now started receiving some receipts in the office.  We wish all of those who have applied good luck.

April 14, 2015 H-1B Cap Premium Processing to Begin April 27
