Sari Mailey's insight:

This article is about how immigration will be affected by the government shutting down.  The 2013 government shut down will not will not impact immigration as badly a it did 18 years ago. However, the immigration process will still a lot to slower due to penis lack of staff in embacy services. The only visas right now that have priority are the life or death situation.  Despite everything, the government is more equipped to handle the shutdown this time around.


In my opinion, immigration is not being affected  greatly.  This is because, visas are not being completely shut down. There are still some staff on duty to work with mandatory visas. However, this could be bad because if you have to get into the country for a nobe life or death situation, you have a slim chance.
