With the passing of a short-term spending measure, Congress temporarily extended federal government funding through November 21, 2019 while FY 2020 budget negotiations continue. This means that many key immigration programs, which are under federal functions, will continue uninterrupted until then, pending President Trump’s signature.

The short-term spending measure temporarily extends the following key immigration programs through November 21, 2019:

  • E-Verify
  • The EB-5 regional center permanent residence program for foreign investors
  • The Conrad 30 waiver program for foreign medical graduates working in areas of the U.S. that are underserved by physicians
  • The special immigrant non-minister religious worker program
