On February 28th, 2018, the Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) submitted a status report to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, stating that it is now postponing the release of proposed H-4 regulations. In response to the litigation in Save Jobs USA v. DHS, DHS initially stated that it would release proposed H-4 regulations in February 2018. DHS now anticipates releasing proposed regulations in June 2018, which will then have to go through Notice and Comment. DHS stated the delay is due to significant revisions and a new economic analysis.
