DHS Publishes Rule Removing International Entrepreneur Program
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is proposing to remove its regulations pertaining to the international entrepreneur program, which would have allowed start-up entities to use an immigration program called parole to gain temporary entry in the United States. Pursuant to Executive Order 13767 which sought review of all DHS parole programs, the agency determined that this program is not the appropriate vehicle for attracting and retaining international entrepreneurs and does not adequately protect U.S. investors and U.S. workers employed by or seeking employment with the start-up.
