Filing Procedures for Employment Authorization and Automatic Extension of Existing Employment Authorization Documents for Liberians Eligible for Deferred Enforced Departure
Document Number: 2016-23798
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-09-30
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
On September 28, 2016, President Obama issued a memorandum to the Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary), Jeh Charles Johnson, directing him to extend for an additional 18 months the deferred enforced departure (DED) of certain Liberians and to provide for work authorization during that period. The DED extension runs from October 1, 2016 through March 31, 2018. This Notice provides instructions for eligible Liberians on how to apply for the full 18-month extension of employment authorization. Finally, this Notice provides instructions for DED-eligible Liberians on how to apply for permission to travel outside the United States during the 18-month DED period. USCIS will issue new employment authorization documents (EADs) with a March 31, 2018 expiration date to Liberians whose DED has been extended under the Presidential Memorandum of September 28, 2016, and who apply for EADs under this extension. Given the timeframes involved with processing EAD applications, DHS recognizes that not all DED- eligible Liberians will receive new EADs before their current EADs expire on September 30, 2016. Accordingly, through this Notice, DHS also automatically extends the validity of DED-related EADs for 6 months, through March 31, 2017, and explains how Liberians covered under DED and their employers may determine which EADs are automatically extended and their impact on Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9) and E-Verify processes.

Standards for Maintaining, Collecting, and Presenting Federal Data on Race and Ethnicity
Document Number: 2016-23672
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-09-30
Agency: Management and Budget Office, Executive Office of the President
The Standards for Maintaining, Collecting, and Presenting Federal Data on Race and Ethnicity were last revised in 1997 (62 FR 58782, Oct. 30, 1997; see https://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/ fedreg_1997standards). Since these revisions were implemented, much has been learned about how these standards have improved the quality of Federal information collected and presented on race and ethnicity. At the same time, some areas may benefit from further refinement. Accordingly, OMB currently is undertaking a review of particular components of the 1997 standard: The use of separate questions measuring race and ethnicity and question phrasing; the classification of a Middle Eastern and North African group and reporting category; the description of the intended use of minimum reporting categories; and terminology used for race and ethnicity classifications. OMB's current review of the standard is limited to these areas. Specific questions appear under the section, ``Issues for Comment.''
