working full time on a CPT. 2 weeks ago there was a change in interpretation by the USCIS and now they are retroactively counting someone as an illegal alien if they were on the above status. Anyone else in the same situation? What are your lawyers saying?

I am in the same boat but it’s not considered illegal according to my research

Did get lawyer say it was illegal?

She received and RFE. After the first masters she was on OPT and after the second masters she is now on CPT. USCIS wrote in the RFE per the new interpretation she is considered an illegal alien. Did Deloitte lawyers say anything? Her lawyers are filing a petition.

Any advice?

has anyone tried ‘automatic revalidation’? i.e has anyone gone to canada when their h1b has expired and come back? i understand that this is allowed if your visit is less than 30 days. can anyone confirm?
