Comprehensive Immigration Reform to Include Permanent Extension for EB5
A statement issued by the office of Sen. Patrick S. Leahy, D-Vt., confirms the release of a comprehensive immigration reform framework, which currently includes permanent extension for EB-5, a popular investment visa category with bipartisan support. Below is an excerpt from the Senators statement; to read the full press release visit Senator Leahy’s website at http://leahy.senate.gov/.
“Senators Reid, Schumer and Menendez have released a productive framework for the process of drafting comprehensive immigration reform legislation. I share their commitment to enacting key legislative efforts including AgJobs, the Uniting American Families Act, the DREAM Act, and a permanent extension of the EB-5 foreign investors program, as part of comprehensive reform. These are sensible, constructive and urgently needed measures that have had, and should continue to have, bipartisan support.”
