The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) corrects an inadvertent error that was made in the Adjustment of Status to Lawful Permanent Resident for Aliens in T and U Nonimmigrant Status interim rule published in the Federal Register on December 12, 2008.

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''.

Correction of Publication

Accordingly, the publication on December 12, 2008, at 73 FR 75540 of the interim final rule that was the subject of FR Doc. E8-29277 is corrected as follows:

PART 245--ADJUSTMENT OF STATUS TO THAT OF PERSON ADMITTED FOR PERMANENT RESIDENCE

Sec. 245.24 [Corrected]
  1. On page 75561, in the second column, at the end of paragraph (d)(9), revise the term ``by specific:'' to read: ``by specific facts;''.


  2. On page 75561, in the second column, at the end of paragraph (d)(10), remove the ``.'' and add a ``; and'' in its place.
Read the complete interim rule on Adjustment of Status to Permanent Residency for aliens in T and U nonimmigrant status …
