Federal Judge Orders DHS to Expedite Ruling on International Entrepreneur Rule

Federal Judge James Boasberg of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia issued a ruling ordering the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) regarding the postponement in enforcement of the International Entrepreneur Rule (IER). The IER is another Obama-era rule that will allow qualified foreign business start-up founders to live and work in the U.S. to develop a profitable business within five years.
The history of the case began when the National Venture Capital Association and a trade group of technology start-ups filed a lawsuit against the Trump Administration for delaying the enforcement of the IER in July 2017 arguing that the Administration did not follow proper legal procedures in enforcing the IER. Furthermore, the Administration made announcements that the IER will not take effect and, ultimately, be rescinded.
