Welcome to Immigration Nerds, today we have Erickson Immigration Group Attorney Krystal Kirst joining the podcast. Yesterday the government passed the Stop gap Bill which continues government funding until February 8th. However earlier today, Paul Ryan announced that Trump will not be signing the bill, putting the government once again back into limbo. The friction between both parties lies upon the topic of border security and whether funding will go toward building the Mexican border wall. Krystal helps shed light on where the parties stand now and give insight into what could happen to immigration-related agencies if the government is in fact shut down. The government has till the end of the day tomorrow to decide that fate.
