As an update to our recent post late Friday evening, The president signed H.R. 601 – Continuing Appropriations Act, 2018 and Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief Requirements Act, 2017, making this important government continuance and public safety measure, incuding important Immigration programs, law.

All government functions are continued until Dec. 8 under this law, including immigration measures for EB-5, E-Verify, Conrad 30, and Religious Workers. By virtue of this extension, It will be necessary for lawmakers to consider further action prior to Dec. 8 to provide for continuing appropriations and reauthorization of many programs, such as the National Flood Insurance Program, the government debt ceiling, and other measures discussed above.
