DHS Withdraws Affidavit of Support Proposed Rule

On March 19, 2021, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced withdrawal of a proposed rule, Affidavit of Support on Behalf of Immigrants.

By taking these steps, DHS aims to reduce barriers and alleviate burdens on American families who wish to sponsor individuals immigrating to the U.S. within the legal immigration system.

On Feb. 2, 2021, President Biden issued Executive Order 14012, Restoring Faith in Our Legal Immigration Systems and Strengthening Integration and Inclusion Efforts for New Americans, revoking the 2019 presidential memorandum.

Consistent with the Feb. 2, 2021, executive order, DHS has withdrawn the Affidavit of Support notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).
