A Series of Unfortunate (And Foreseeable) Events – Episode 168

EB-5 is a complex and difficult area to understand, let alone adjudicate. In addition to the web of niche business and immigration laws, ever-changing regulations from Congress and new USCIS procedures constantly keep this industry on its toes.  

As a result, EB-5 Investment Voice is releasing a series of episodes examining recent USCIS trends and how to respond to them – including processing times, denials, missteps, and more. In today’s episode, we welcome Angelo Paparelli, EB-5 veteran and Partner at Seyfarth Shaw LLP, to the podcast. Angelo and Mona break down various issues facing EB-5, including how USCIS is tackling their massive backlog, why stakeholders may expect to see an increase in denials, and how to respond according to RIA guidelines.
