DHS delays rule allowing entrepreneurs into the United States
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is temporarily postponing the effective date of the International Entrepreneur Final Rule. This delay should provide DHS with an opportunity to obtain comments from the public regarding a proposal to rescind the rule pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13767, “Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements.”
The rule, which was proposed by President Obama’s DHS last year, would have given the agency the authority to grant entrepreneurs “parole” on a case-by-case basis to enter the U.S. for up to five years, with the possibility of an extension, if they could demonstrate substantial U.S. investment and the potential for rapid growth and job creation.
The International Entrepreneur Rule, which was scheduled to go into effect on July 17, has been delayed until March 14, 2018.
