Admin, Thanks for the Info. That is really helpful.

This EAD includes AP as well? Also, do we need to wait for one year after I140 or they are considering immediate EAD after I140 as well?

As you said, they are submitting it for the comments around Nov 15th (I believe initial OMB approval) , do you know the tentative timeline to become rule and USCIS start accepting the applications? and lastly, once we get an EAD, do we still need to maintain H1B status?
Thanks again

Q. Would all these options be posted for comments or just the one of them. The recommended one in the doc is Option 2.

I bet the name calling is and will still be going on! It's like no matter what IV does, people are just not able to see who their friends are.

It is one thing to not believe IV when IV says immigration lawyers/companies (they are one group in cahoots!) are working against this fix and it is another thing to actually trust the lawyers in believing they are helping with this fix. This is bad because, like Admin said, the scattered efforts are wasted.

Hope the immigrants (WE) can unite on this action item (and I am happy that a lawsuit cannot be filed for this one!).

Default H1-B and L1-A excluded?

EAD may only be granted to individuals who are in certain lawful nonimmigrant status, t.e.
excluding H-1Bs or L-lAs

I am worried after reading this in the memo. Does it mean only L1-Bs are counted?

Thanks

It says Option 2 is the preferred option "EAD may only be granted to individuals who are lawfully present in the United States" That includes H-1B/L-1 etc.

Must be bcoz lawyers and employers are trying to screw up everything....

Cyrus Mehta had already indicated that Anti Immigrant Lawyers Associates are trying their best to block this effort or water down. Their lobbying organization had never wanted this to come out and so never asked in any letter for the 140 EAD.

What is the chance that option 4 will not be selected over Option 2? There is no guarantee, unless we speak up. Option 4 almost looks like an lawyers sponsored option.

Only those of us who have spent the last year - fending off AILA and the Employers from the commonsense I140-EAD fix truly understand the irony of that statement.

AILA and the Employers are not done attacking the rule yet.

Rest of you, please keep your fingers crossed and follow Action Items religiously - even if they require you to step out of your comfort zone. The last few years (especially the last few months) has been a high-wire knife fight between IV and the usual suspects that has left a lot of us on edge. If you want your freedom, you will have to join us in fighting for it.

Yeah. Who came up with this option and the mention of "fear of litigation"?
