Jose Latour Wins ALM International Law Recognition

The Inexcusable I-526 Limbo

When even a Senator can't get the Director of USCIS to "unstick" inexcusable I-526 adjudication delays, it's time to write the White House.  Let's see if Mr. Obama is serious about his "Invest in America" agenda...or whether USCIS inaction will lead to an exodus of EB-5 investment capital and ghosts...
