On Monday, a new US Regulation was introduced which makes it more difficult for the immigrants to obtain Permanent Residency, aka Green Card.
This ‘public change’ will also be applicable for the extension of non-immigrant stay in the United States of America.
President Donald Trump’s office will start imposing this new rule after a month-long legal battle. Once this change is completely enforced, this will make the US immigration system tougher to obtain as several restrictions were levied on the candidate’s income, age, academics, etc.
Still, there are pending court appeals on this new change after the Supreme Court of the US lifted an injunction which was imposed by Illinois district court on Feb 21st. Earlier several injunctions were lifted off which were imposed by the district courts of Washington, New York, California, and Maryland.
This rule will not apply for immigrants who already possess a Green Card. This new law also made an exception for refugees and people looking to or has already been granted political asylum.
