USCIS Unlawful Presence Policy
August 2, 2019 § Leave a comment
The USCIS’s memo titled “Accrual of Unlawful Presence and F, J, and M Nonimmigrants,” went into effect on August 9, 2018. The memo penalized international students who overstayed and violated the terms of their visas. However, due to a pending lawsuit, the government’s proposal to be tougher on students falling out of status and accruing unlawful presence has not been able to go into effect.
