On December 9, 2016, the United States Senate passed a continuing resolution to fund the government through April 28, 2017, by a margin of 63-36. Having already passed the U.S. House, the continuing resolution will head to the desk of President Barack Obama for his signature.
The continuing resolution will extend several important immigration initiatives until April 28, 2017, most notably the EB5 immigrant investor program [see article]. We will update the blog with information concerning the future of the EB5 immigrant investor program and other key immigration programs going into the next round of budget negotiations this upcoming April. To learn more about the debate over the future of the EB5 immigrant investor program, please see my recent blog on the subject [see blog].
