MATTHEW GALATI QUOTED IN BLOOMBERG BNA ARTICLE ON E-VERIFY, EB-5 EFFECTS OF FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN

Matthew Galati

On January 22, 2018, Senior Associate Matthew Galati was quoted in  “E-Verify Loses Reauthorization Amid Government Shutdown,’” printed in Bloomberg ​BNA (Paywall).

Published during the three-day lapse in appropriations and reauthorization of several programs, Matt opined on the struggles employers faced earlier this week. Matt also discussed the interplay between fee-funded programs which largely proceeded without interruption and Department of Labor related filings which were momentarily halted.

As we have discussed previously, the U.S. government resumed its operations on January 23. E-Verify, the EB-5 Regional Center Program, Conrad 30, and Special Immigrant Religious Worker Visas were also resumed. Reauthorizations and federal funding are currently in place through February 8.

Founded in 1929, Bloomberg BNA is a nationally-distributed publication featuring articles on legal, tax, regulatory, and business information for professionals.

A copy of the article is attached to this post below. Contact us today for advice regarding the effects of the changes in Washington on your immigration and business planning.
