Word-for-word blurbs that refer us to USCIS Questions and Answers where we learn... nothing new.
I doubt if either of my readers has a CNMI-approved lemonade stand they're trying to squeeze in under the new E-2 category, but in any case here's the first Q&A:
Q. Can I file for classification as an E-2 CNMI Investor now?Paraphrased: nothing to see here; move on.
A. No. The E-2 CNMI Investor rule has not been finalized, so you cannot file for the E-2 CNMI Investor classification. All petitions filed seeking classification as an E-2 CNMI Investor will be returned to the petitioner until the final rule is published. The proposed rule was posted in the Federal Register on September 14, 2009 for a public comment period; that period is now closed.
