SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Need for Correction

On December 12, 2008, the Department of Homeland Security published an interim rule in the Federal Register at 73 FR 75540 to permit aliens in lawful T or U nonimmigrant status to apply for adjustment of status to lawful permanent resident. At 8 CFR 245.24 DHS inadvertently:

  • Ended the sentence in paragraph (d)(9) with a “:” instead of a “;”,
  • Omitted the word “facts” immediately after the word “specific” at the end of paragraph (d)(9), and
  • Ended the sentence in paragraph (d)(10) with a “period” rather than a “; and”.
