Congress approved the Omnibus Appropriations legislation on Feb. 14, 2019.  On Feb. 15, the president signed the legislation into law and announced additional executive actions to further address needs the Administration has identified at the southern border.

Now, all 12 Appropriations bills for this fiscal year are complete and extended through Sept. 30, 2019, and Congress may return to its agenda without concern for any further Appropriations-related government shutdowns or lapses in critical programs such as EB-5, E-Verify, and others.
