EB-5 Exempted from Trump Proclamation Suspending Certain Immigration

Yesterday, President Donald J. Trump issued a Proclamation suspending immigrants from entering the United States for the next 60 days.

The Proclamation does, however, provide exemptions for certain prospective immigrants, including “any alien applying for a visa to enter the United States pursuant to the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program.” This Proclamation can be modified within the first 50 days, as deemed necessary by the President in consultation with the Secretary of Homeland Security, and can be continued beyond 60 days as deemed necessary by the President.

From the Text:

(b) The suspension and limitation on entry pursuant to section 1 of this proclamation shall not apply to:

(iii) any alien applying for a visa to enter the United States pursuant to the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program;
