Senate Approves One Month Extension of E-Verify and Other Immigration Programs

Posted on October 1st, 2009, by James Livesay in Immigration Law. 1 Comment

With only hours remaining before the end of the fiscal year, the Senate last night approved a continuing resolution that will allow the Department of Homeland Security to operate until the end of October while House and Senate conferees try to work out a final version of the agency’s spending bill. The House passed the stop-gap measure last week, and the resolution now heads to the White House for President Obama’s signature.

The continuing resolution effectively extends four major immigration programs – the Conrad 30 J-1 program for doctors, the religious workers program, E-Verify and the EB-5 investor visa – through October 31, 2009.
