Immigration Daily's March 10, 2004 issue reports that DHS Eliminates Mexican TN Nonimmigrant Numerical Cap and that the rule also eliminates the LCA requirement. DHS has only published guidance on a law that took place on January 1, 2004.
NAFTA had sunset provisions since its enactment that provided that the
elimination of the 5,500 cap and H1-B like requirements (including LCAs) for
Mexicans that applied for a TN visa would take place 10 years after the
entry into force of NAFTA. The sunset date was 01/01/2004. Immigration
attorneys that deal with consular processing and TN-2 visas in particular
have known of this for some time now. Consulates had been accepting TN2
applications similarly to TN1 (Canadians) since January 1st.
