In an action brought against the Employment Training Administration of the Department of Labor (DOL) and the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) challenging a DOL regulation retroactively invalidating labor certifications that had been issued to plaintiffs, judgment for defendants is affirmed where: 1) 20 C.F.R. section 656.6.30(b) as amended is within the scope of DOL's statutory authority in compliance with the explicit language from section 1182(a)(5)(A)(i)(I) which imposes a time limit between the certification and the visa application; and 2) the application of the amended section 656.30(b) has no retroactive effect in this case.
