It Is Time To Open the U.S.

Lifting the Muslim ban is the most anticipated immigration policy change the world is waiting for from the U.S. It has been a tumultuous 4 years for U.S. immigration and Joe Biden’s promise to lift the travel ban in his first 100 days in office is the steadiness we have been waiting for.

EB-5 Next Chapter

Joe Biden has continuously communicated his plans and policy changes for his first 100 days in office. We have dissected and analyzed the policies he wants to immediately give attention to and have applauded his direction.

A Joe Biden Administration – Immigration Visas

Change is finally here and has come with Joe Biden being elected as the 46th President of the United States. The Democrats have been preparing for this win for a long time and have since announced a long list of Donald Trump enacted policy changes they wish to reverse. While Donald Trump made ample radical policy changes it will be interesting to see which areas Joe Biden targets in his first 100 days in office.
