Overnight Reversal: Senate Advances Continuing Resolution (UPDATED)

Matthew Galati

In a happily surprising reversal from yesterday’s developments, the U.S. Senate today has advanced the Continuing Resolution which will extend the EB-5 Regional Center program until December 9 without change.

The Senate’s change in heart comes after Democratic and Republican lawmakers were able to strike a deal overnight regarding the Flint water crisis.

The CR will now move onto the House where it is expected to pass. The House vote vote may be as early as today. The President is also expected to sign the bill into law before expiration at midnight, Friday, when the program would otherwise lapse.

Stay tuned for further developments.

 UPDATE -- Sep. 29, 2016:

The CR passed the U.S. House as expected and was signed into law by President Obama early this morning. The EB-5 Regional Center program is extended without change until Dec. 9.

Employment-Based I-485s: Ability to Use the Earlier Date for Filing Charts May Come to a Close

Back in September, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) was allowing applicants to file their I-485 applications for adjustment of status in both the employment-based and the family-based categories according to the earlier-in-time Filing Date Charts. Put another way, USCIS has been accepting Form I-485 filings for all prospective qualifying immigrants before a visa number is technically available. Green and Spiegel has been filing our clients’ files in light of this change for months, however, it appears that this will shortly come to an end. Learn more here.
