The EB-5 program may be about to suffers the “slings and arrows of misfortune” of a U.S. government shutdown.
It is doubtful that the extension of the EB-5 program will even be an issue, but it will be impacted. The annual threat of a government shutdown is looming larger this year, as was noted in the September 16th Republican Presidential Candidate Debate.
The larger issue is the potential defunding of Planned Parenthood, which most Republicans want to do. Although Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) believes that holding up funding as a component of not passing a continuing resolution to keep funding the government at large is “an exercise in futility,” the fact that it was a subject of the three-hour debate has now put the larger issue in the spotlight.
