Supreme Court to Hear Case Involving USCIS and Agency Actions

The Supreme Court of the United States will hear Kisor v. Wilkie, a case heard before the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit regarding the ability of administrative agencies to interpret their own ambiguous regulations. A ruling in this case could influence the manner by which the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) interprets internal regulations and agency memos, which could have sweeping ramifications on the decision making process for visas and other immigration benefits.
