New US Department of Homeland Security secretary should bring more professionalism, expertise, and efficiency to USCIS adjudications

Alejandro Mayorkas has been confirmed as the new secretary of the US Department of Homeland Security.

Experts consider him knowledgeable about the EB-5 program, and it is predicted that his appointment will result in faster application processing times and greater professionalism in the administration of immigrant investor visas.

His previous roles in Homeland Security were as director of USCIS from 2009 to 2013 and as deputy director of Homeland Security from 2013 to 2016, both under the Obama administration.

EB-5 Program Update:

The EB-5 Program has lapsed. The US Congress is discussing the legislation that authorizes the program while USCIS reviews the regulations and policies for filing. Because of the recent court ruling that reversed the 2019 Modernization regulations, the investment level has shifted temporarily from $900,000 back to $500,000.
