Over 300 EB-5 professionals will get together to discuss the future of the EB-5 industry. The 2019 IIUSA Industry Forum will be held from October 28-30 in Seattle, Washington. Immigration attorney Matthew Galati will represent Green and Spiegel LLC as he joins Breakout 4, USCIS Policy & Actions: Living in a World of Adjudication Backlogs, RFEs, and NOIDs panel on Tuesday, October 29th at 3:30pm. Matthew will discuss cutting edge EB-5 litigation, including a recent lawsuit filed against USCIS stemming from unreasonable I-526 delays.

Matthew joins fellow panelists Joseph Barnett of Wolfsdorf Rosenthal, Marisa Marconi of Pinnacle Plan Writing, and John Pratt of Kurzban KurzbanTetzeli & Pratt. These speakers were chosen given their knowledge and experience in EB-5 industry. This discussion will focus on current adjudication timing, USCIS processing times, comprehensive and credible business plans, impermissible debt arrangements, what can be done about misappropriated EB-5 capital, source of funds issues, and project filings to meet the Nov. 21, 2019 new regulations deadline.

Proclamation on the Suspension of Entry as Immigrants and Non-Immigrants of Certain Additional Persons Who Pose a Risk of Transmitting Coronavirus Disease

On January 25, 2020, the Biden Administration extended the travel restrictions for Ireland, the United Kingdom, the Schengen Area, and Brazil and added travel restrictions for South Africa. Travel restrictions for South Africa go into effect on January 30, 2021 and the others are an extension of existing travel restrictions. The travel restrictions do not apply to a number of categories of Noncitizens and provide a waiver for the national interest. The policy does not contain procedures necessary to request national interest exceptions, likely leaving in place the procedures presently employed.
