On September 28, President Obama signed into law a bill that extended several immigration provisions for three years. They are: (1) the EB-5 Regional Center program, which permits immigrant investors to invest $500,000 in certain regional programs and obtain, if approved, conditional residency; (2) E-Verify, the Internet-based system operated by USCIS in partnership with the Social Security Administration (SSA), which allows participating employers to electronically verify the employment eligibility of their newly hired employees; (3) the Religious Worker program, a immigrant “green card” visa category for non minister special immigrant religious workers; and (4) the Conrad State 30 J-1 Waiver program, which authorizes each state to request waivers of the two-year home residency requirement to certain foreign medical graduates in change for providing primary patient care for three years in medically undeserved areas. While a more ideal outcome for all programs would have been making them permanent, the three-year extension gives important peace of mind to those in process and involved with these programs.
