In response to the Department of Labor’s rule changing prevailing wage determination, the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) has filed a lawsuit to block the Department of Labor’s prevailing wage rule and has sought summary judgment in that case. In addition, the U.S. chamber of commerce and other Plaintiffs have also filed a separate legal action that opposes both the Department of Labor prevailing wage rule and the Department of Homeland Security specialty occupation rule.
According to AILA the deadline to comment on the Department of Labor prevailing wage rule was November 9, 2020. Also, the deadline for commenting on the lottery registration rule is December 2nd, 2020 and the deadline for commenting on the Department of Homeland Security specialty occupation rule is December 7th, 2020. AILA strongly urges all the members to take an active part in opposing these rules through their comments. The more the agencies know about the deleterious impact on the regulated community of these rules the more likely AILA is able to overturn the rules in court.
