Delays in USCIS issuance of work permits results in lawsuit

A recent lawsuit has been filed against the USCIS for its failure to issue “interim” work permits to Immigrants, when USCIS delays in work permit processing exceed 90 days.

Federal regulations require that work permits, request on form I-765 be issued within 90 days, or a temporary work permit called “interim” work authorization be issued.

These “interim” work permits allow Immigrants to work temporarily while waiting for the regular EAD to be issued. However, against the regulatory requirement, the USCIS has been refusing to issue the temporary work permits and as a result, has been sued by an Immigrants rights group seeking to force the USCIS to begin issuing the “interim permits in accordance with the law.
