  2. Generally speaking, one should be able to travel abroad and return prior to the expiration date of the valid AP.
  3. It appears that we've convinced the USCIS to reverse course on this issue. We sent an eMail to the Nebraska Service Center (NVC) about this issue; during an NVC stakeholder meeting at the end of last week, one of the section chief's acknowledged reviewing the Murthy Law Firm eMail, agreed that we were correct, and advised that he would instruct his officers to stop denying these AP applications. So, assuming the NVC follows through with this, there's no need for you to make any changes based on our article. (We'll be posting a follow-up article to inform the public about what transpired soon.)
  4. Sorry for the confusion. To clarify, the point of the article is that applications for AP documents (i.e. I-131 applications) were being denied if the applicant traveled abroad before the AP was issued. It was NOT indicating that people requesting admission on valid AP documents were being denied reentry. Fortunately, right after we posted this article, it appears we were able to get the USCIS to correct the issue. During a stakeholder call with the Nebraska Service Center of Thursday afternoon, one of the Section Chiefs for the USCIS who was on the call noted that he had received correspondence from one of our attorneys, and he agreed that these AP denials were being issued in error. So, he is clarifying to the adjudicators that, so long as the I-131 applicant has a valid means of returning to the U.S. (e.g., H1B visa), travelling abroad while the AP application is pending will not result in the I-131 being denied. We'll be posting this update in a new article soon.

  6. As of yet, we have not seen any indication that the memo will impact those with approved petitions applying for a visa 'stamp'.
  7. I'm sorry, but I'm not sure I understand your question. Please rephrase.

  9. Please see the following: Understanding the Current Administration & Immigration: FAQs
  10. Yes, "congressional action" would be passing a bill and then having it signed into law by the President. But, it is more likely that, if the H-4 EAD program is to be eliminated, that it would be done via regulation, not congress.
  11. Please see the following: https://www.murthy.com/2017/01/26/understanding-the-current-administration-immigration-faqs/
  12. Yes, we've been hearing a lot of "news" (i.e. unsubstantiated rumors), too. No, neither have been revoked. To revoke them, it would almost certainly require the President to have a rule go through the entire, formal regulatory process. As of yet, nothing has been signed to direct the DHS to do this. But, if things change, we will post the information on MurthyDotCom.
  13. This would only apply if the person is otherwise removable (i.e. deportable). A conviction for disturbing the peace would not typically make a person removable.
  14. Sure, any type of business can be used for EB5 purposes, so long as it meets the standard EB5 requirements (e.g., invest at least $500,000 in the business, hire at least 10 full time U.S. workers). If you'd like to discuss this further, you may reach me at EB5@murthy.com.
  15. As part of our services, we would have a person licensed by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) assist you with selecting a regional center project. His company conducts extensive due diligence on dozens of projects and then provides you with an analysis of the best 4 or 5 projects to review. If you’re interested in pursuing an EB5 case with the Murthy Law Firm, you may contact one of our EB5 attorneys at EB5@murthy.com.
