Letter to USCIS on Policy Manual Changes to Physical Presence Requirement for Asylee/Refugee Adjustment

Policy Advocacy

On February 2, 2023, USCIS announced  changes to the Policy Manual guidance on the one-year physical presence requirement for asylee/refugee adjustment. In a comment letter on February 16, 2023,  ILRC  commended USCIS on the changes. We believe they  will increase fair and consistent adjudications for asylees and refugees seeking adjustment.
