DHS/USCIS RIN: 1615-AC19 Publication ID: Spring 2020 
Title: Removal of 30-Day Processing Provision for Asylum Applicant-Related Form I-765 Employment Authorization Applications 

On September 9, 2019, DHS issued a proposed rule that would withdraw a regulatory provision stating that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has 30 days from the date an asylum applicant files the initial Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization (EAD application) to grant or deny that initial employment authorization application. DHS also proposed removing the provision requiring that the application for renewal must be received by USCIS 90 days prior to the expiration of the employment authorization.  DHS will issue a final rule to respond to public comments and finalize removal of these provisions.
