On May 6, 2010, we posted a blog informing of Puerto Rico’s new law that invalidates Puerto Rican birth certificates issued prior to July 1, 2010.
We are now following up on the latest developments.
On September 20, 2010, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) made available to the public an interim memorandum dated August 26, 2010, for comments concerning the validity of Puerto Rican birth certificates as evidence. The comment period ends on October 4, 2010. The interim memo is in effect until further notice by the USCIS.
Click here to read the interim memo in its entirety, which explains how and until when Puerto Rican birth certificates can be used as evidence when applying for an immigration benefit.
