The USCIS has released the schedule for the public to attend question and answer sessions to get information on the final rule. As  the calendar below indicates, some sessions are directed at employers only, but most are open to the public.

I encourage ALL foreign workers to attend the sessions to be able to ask questions and understand the final rule. Since the comment period has ended, these are informative sessions so that you can learn the procedures under the rule.

Additionally, foreign workers should remember that USCIS cannot grant green card or permanent residency status to the foreign workers, only Congress can do that. The USCIS is charged with regulating the federal CNMI-only guest worker program.
