A federal district court judge has issued a nationwide preliminary injunction, effective immediately, which prohibits the USCIS from enforcing its "Accrual of Unlawful Presence and F, J, and M Nonimmigrants” Guidance Memo. That memo penalized F, J, and M international students for overstaying or violating the terms of their visas in extremely harsh, unprecedented ways. MU Law detailed that Guidance Memo in September.

This is great news for F, J, and M nonimmigrants, including those who trained under CPT and OPT.
