DHS Expected to Issue STEM OPT Rule in Early Fall

The Council for Global Immigration (CGI) has updated its members regarding the recent decision of a District Court judge which vacated the 17-month STEM OPT rule, but stayed the order until February 12, 2016.  The CGI recognizes that this will put the Department of Homeland Security on a short timeline to issue a rule with a proper notice and comment period, but expects that a proposed rule will be issued in late September or early October, with a 30 or 60 day comment period to follow thereafter.

Stakeholders will have a chance to comment on the proposed rule once it is issued and provide valuable input.
