[Q] Can a state authorize a municipality, city or county to issue a high unemployment area designation letters?


Probably not. USCIS stated that its legal position is that municipalities cannot act for a state by issuing high unemployment area designation letters. Specifically, Texas better change its policy to comply with this USCIS position.
