Earlier this week, sixteen Congressional House representatives sent a letter to Sec. Jeh Johnson (DHS) and Sec. John Kerry (DOS) for answers related to September’s bumbled visa bulletin roll-out that resulted in a last minute revised Visa Bulletin, just days before the October 1 live date.
This blog produced several articles on the series of events, which has been dubbed “Visa Gate” on Twitter.
The House Member’s letter asks for the estimated number of applicants who were impacted by the last minute revised Visa Bulletin.
Going further, they ask for DHS to consider providing EAD cards and allowing portability to those with approved I-140s. Both concepts were recently endorsed by AILA.
