USCIS Update: Court Grants Injunction of Transitional Worker Rule

WASHINGTON - U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) advises that the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia granted a preliminary injunction prohibiting DHS from implementing the Transitional Worker Classification interim final rule. As a result, DHS will not implement the transitional worker rule at this time and USCIS will not accept any Petitions for a CNMI transitional worker (CW-1) Nonimmigrant, Form I-129CW until further notice. 
This injunction does not affect any aspect of the CNRA's application of Federal immigration laws other than the transitional worker nonimmigrant category.
