In a filing with a federal judge, USCIS indicated that it has delayed the revocation of the H-4/EAD rule. USCIS says that “the earliest possible publication date” of the revocation is spring 2020. This is good news for H-4 /EAD holders.
There are rumors that the USCIS has badly miscalculated the negative impact on the US economy, which is why the revocation of the rule has been . Rules of this type must be approved by the Office of Management and Budget, which likely has called into question USCIS’ calculations.
