What does it mean for me as an EB-5 investor that the DOJ has removed the case quota for immigration judges?

I am an EB-5 investor from India who have a pending case. Does this mean it will go faster? What is the impact of this for EB-5 investors?

    Is your pending case in removal (deportation) proceedings? If not, this notice has no effect on you.

    This will have no impact on EB-5. This was a legislation under the Trump Administration that required immigration judges to adjudicate a certain number of cases and that would go against basic concepts of justice.

    It has nothing whatsoever to do with your application.

    This decision will not affect the adjudication of petitions as part of the EB-5 process, unless the I-829 petitioner happens to be in removal (deportation) proceedings.

    Case quotas for immigration judges are not relevant for EB-5 processing purposes.
