  • Jul 29 - Second Grace Period for RCs

    Jul 29 - Second Grace Period for RCs

    Comment: Second Grace Period for RCs In our commentary USCIS Cannot Issue RC Regs we stated that USCIS is unlikely to issue any regulation until Congress reauthorizes the RC program. This means there will be a SECOND “Grace Period” for Regional Centers, somewhat similar to the Grace Period that existed from July 2019 through November 2019. This will be for ALL RCs, with the liberal TEA definition that existed prior to November 2019. Just like in 2019, this SECOND Grace Period...

    Article: Pooled Direct EB-5's Day in the Sun by Matt Gordon

    Pooled Direct EB-5's Day in the Sun by Matt Gordon Paraphrasing Mark Twain, the reports of the demise of the EB-5 program have been greatly exaggerated. It is true that on as of July 1, 2021, the Regional Center (pilot) program, enacted in the Immigration Act of 1993, lapsed; however, the EB-5 program itself, which was created by the Immigration Act of 1990 (and not subject to a sunset) is alive and well. What this means is that only direct EB-5 projects, those that create ten or more...

  • Jul 27 - Expedited Direct & EB5 investments for RCs during lapse

    Jul 27 - Expedited Direct & EB5 investments for RCs during lapse

    Comment: Expedited Direct & EB5 investments for RCs during lapse One consequence of the RC program lapse is that USCIS’s IPO has nothing to do except process direct 526s (and all 829s). Since more than 95% of all 526s have been RC-based 526s, and less than 5% are Directs, we would not be surprised if Direct I-526s start getting approvals within a month or two, effectively expediting all Direct I-526s. If USCIS does not deliver super-fast processing times for Direct I-526s applications durin...

    The Fight for Immigration Justice Is Not Over: SCOTUS Rules Mandatory Detention of Certain Immigrants Seeking Safety in the United States by Sophia Genovese In Johnson v. Guzman Chavez, 594 U.S. __ (2021), the Supreme Court held that noncitizens in withholding-only proceedings are not entitled to a custody redetermination, or bond, hearing before the Immigration Court.
