Congress Passes Continuing Resolution Opening Government and Vital Programs such as EB-5 and E-Verify

As a continuation of an earlier posting, the U.S. Senate initiated a process by voice vote opening the US Government through February 15, H.J. Res 28, and providing for House and Senate consideration of Department of Homeland Security Appropriations, H. J. Res 31.   These actions will provide funding for all remaining Appropriations bills subject to the recent lapse.  This action will also re-start suspended vital immigration programs such as the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Regional Center Program, E-Verify, Conrad 30 Waiver Program for J-1  medical doctors and Non-minister religious workers programs.

The House passed the legislative package by Unanimous Consent later in the evening.  The House will forward the legislation to the President wherein he is expected to sign (per media reports) the package into law.

Please check back as we will be posting additional information regarding the US Government re-starting of operations.
