DHS has informed the federal court on Sep 21, 2018, that they expect the proposed H4 EAD withdrawal rule to be published for public comments within 3 months. Based on the current projections this could potentially be in the first week of Jan 2019 or late Dec 2018.
Currently, the rule set is pending with USCIS for their review. DHS has completed their portion of rulemaking work. Once USCIS sends it back to DHS, it will be immediately sent for OMB review.
Previously SaveJOBSUSA has asked the federal court to continue the case as DHS is currently taking too long to publish the rules for EAD withdrawal.
