Start-Up Visa May be Eliminated: Please Comment

Just a quick reminder that the public comment period for the International Entrepreneur Rule (IER) ends tomorrow!

The Department of Homeland Security seeks comment by tomorrow, June 28, on a proposal to eliminate the so-called “startup visa,” or international entrepreneur rule (IER). The IER allows foreign entrepreneurs with fast-growing businesses in the US to get temporary “parole status” to work here legally. A federal judge previously ordered DHS to accept applications to the Obama-era program, but DHS has failed to issue final decisions on the applications it has received & it now seeks to eliminate this program entirely.

The team at McEntee Law prepared a comment guide for American Constitution Society and you can access it here. Please use this to assist you as you comment in the Federal Register.

You can also get information from FWD.us on why we need to have our voices heard on this critical program for foreign born founders and co-founders.

Thank you for using your voice to urge the Department of Homeland Security to preserve the IER.
