Ronald Klasko.  IIUSA is honored to host a panel of such prestigious immigration attorneys, who will discuss what you “need to know” from this massive release of new information.  USCIS Officials have also been invited to participate on the panel to provide their perspective on this new development in the EB-5 Program.
