Employment Authorization Document and the Asylum Clock Engagement
On September 19, 2011, the United States Department of Justice (USDOJ) Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), USCIS Asylum Division, USCIS Service Center Operations, USCIS Office of Chief Counsel, and USCIS Office of Public Engagement (OPE) hosted a stakeholder engagement regarding Employment Authorization Documents (EAD) and the asylum clock.
The purpose of the session was for EOIR and USCIS to listen to the views and experiences of individual stakeholders. EOIR and USCIS were particularly interested in hearing from stakeholders their views and concerns regarding the asylum clock, employment authorization, and existing asylum clock policies. The session was not used for the purpose of obtaining group or consensus advice.
