Immigration Council Call for Plaintiffs: EAD Adjudication Delays



The American Immigration Council, Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP), Gibbs Houston Pauw, Scott D. Pollock & Associates, P.C., and Van der Hout, Brigagliano & Nightingale, LLP, have filed a class action lawsuit challenging USCIS’s failure to timely adjudicate applications for employment authorization documents (EADs) and to issue interim employment authorization. If your client’s EAD application has not been adjudicated within the regulatory time period and s/he may be interested in serving as a plaintiff in the lawsuit, please fill out the form below.

Plaintiffs’ counsel are collecting examples of cases that have been pending past 90 days and cases where asylum applicants have had to wait beyond the regulatory 30 day period. Please do NOT include any EAD applications based on initial DACA applications (Form I-821D) at this time. Also please do not submit cases if you have “asylum clock problems,” i.e., where the government may disagree that the required 150 days have elapsed. If you have questions, please e-mail Clearinghouse@immcouncil.org with the subject line "EAD Processing Delays."
