  • The rescission of a previous policy memorandum instructing the USCIS to give deference to previous approvals when reviewing renewal H-1B Petitions
  • Increased scrutiny on the proper maintenance of status for F-1 visa holders
  • The introduction of a system through which F-1 students accrue unlawful presence
