Allow immigrants to work with USCIS I-765 receipt notice

Due to the current health crisis, USCIS processing times are taking longer than it did. EAD documents were usually delivered in up to 90 days but they currently take up to 12+ months to be processed.

Allowing employers to validate I-9 with an USCIS I-765 renewal or new receipt notice would allow immigrants to jump start on working while waiting for their EAD to be processed. This would certainly reduce the number of expedite requests sent that takes time off an already backlogged service.
