The govt. Shutdown has come down hard on the immigrants working in the US with H-1B visas, especially if their Visa renewal is scheduled on the coming week. Immigration Lawyer are of the opinion that the Shutdown will not last more than one week, which is a good news. But those whose visa's expires before the patching up between the Democrats and the Republicans will have a tough time. The American Bazaar reported that, if the Passport agencies abroad are inside the govt. building, it might be also affected by the Shutdown. Companies recruiting new employees cannot E-Verify employees and they too get affected. :flame:

The shut down has brought bigger problems for a lot of families and businesses then delayed visa appointments and background verifications.
