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.

Trump Administration Rescinds Ruling against Foreign Students

We previously reported that the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) announced plans to severely modify temporary exemptions for nonimmigrant students taking courses during the Fall semester that would result in international students enrolled in online programs being stripped of their visas, denied entry to the united States, or forced to depart the country if already here. Today the government has agreed to rescind the July 6, 2020 policy and will return to the March 13, 2020 policy which allowed nonimmigrants students to take more online courses than usually permitted by Federal regulations.

M.I.T. and Harvard Sue the Trump Administration over Plan to Require In-Person Classes for International Students

The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) announced plans to severely modify temporary exemptions for nonimmigrant students taking online courses during the fall semester forcing students enrolled in programs operating entirely online to depart the United States or transfer to another school in order to avoid deportation. Universities across the country were swift to criticize and decry this decision by the Trump administration; and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T) and Harvard have filed a lawsuit against them.
