Comment: Cuccinelli on New EB5 Reg

On July 1st--the very next business day after USCIS received the new EB5 Regulation from the OMB--USCIS Acting Director tweeted out the following from his official Twitter account.


USCIS Acting Director Ken Cucinelli @USCISCuccinelli "Good news! @OMBPress cleared the #EB5 modernization rule last week. This is a good step toward reforming the program so that it more closely aligns with Congressional intent to benefit our economy and create jobs for American workers."

This is by far the clearest public confirmation from the USCIS head--who is the official responsible for taking the final step of signing off on regulations before they are sent to the Federal Register--that the new EB5 regulation is on its way to be published in the Federal Register.
