Comment: Pro-Immigration Republicans
Senators generally take a broader view of politics and more moderate positions than those in the House. This is because their political base is state-wide and contains the entire range of views on any issue as opposed to small gerrymandered districts of House Representative that aggregate people with similar political positions. Presidential hopefuls need to take even broader view if they expect to win general elections. The likes of former Presidential candidate Romney who attempt to pander to the narrow clique of anti-immigrationists during the primaries are doomed to be trounced in the general election. Unlike Mr. Romney who was gravely mistaken in taking his wholly misguided immigration position, current Republican hopefuls are taking a different tack. According to the US News & World Report Presidential contender Jeb Bush is calling for a dramatic expansion of employment-based immigration.
In Republican presidential prospect Jeb Bush's first major economic speech, the former Florida governor said the U.S. economy should be growing at 4 percent annually - and called making it easier for skilled immigrants to enter the country a key to getting there. He also called for "dramatically expanding" the number of immigrants allowed to enter the country to work in high-need jobs, while calling the prospect of overhauling the country's immigration system "a huge opportunity - not a problem... I view fixing a broken system as a huge opportunity to get to that four percent growth." In a speech last month to auto dealers in San Francisco, he called immigrants "an engine of economic vitality." Of skilled guest workers, investors and inventors seeking to immigrate legally to the U.S., he said, "All these people should be welcomed in our country, and the unwritten contract ought to be: Embrace our values and you can pursue your dreams. You come, you work hard, you embrace these values, and you're as American as anyone who came on the Mayflower."

The article also points out that Jeb Bush is not alone in his pro-immigration positions - Republican hopefuls Senator Marco Rubio and Governor Scott Walker have made similar statements. We urge these and other pro-immigration Republicans to stand up to the anti-immigrationist gang in their party. They would be defending an immigration tradition that has shaped America from before its inception as a country. This is not only the right thing to do for America and for the Republican Party, but also for themselves if they hope to stand a chance to win a Presidential election.

Focus: EB-5 Events for Chinese Students
Chinese international students are coming to the US in dramatically increased numbers. The explosion in undergrad Chinese students started in 2008 and continues. For EB-5 purposes Chinese students offer the best prospects. We have been conducting events in 2014 educating Chinese Students on EB-5 in New York City. We can conduct similar events in six other cities across US. For each city we promote the event to multiple campuses across the metropolitan region; this can vary from ten to twenty campuses per city. The time frame for the events is determined based on the academic calendar. These are short evening events that require a short single night stay trip from the sponsoring Regional Center or law firm. During the educational event covering the students' immigration options the sponsor makes a short presentation about their project or law firm. The event structure allows for plenty of networking opportunities with students. These events are available only to Regional Centers that use Regulation-D or to law firms, and we require clients to consult a securities attorney before signing up for these events. For more information please contact us at tel: (212)545-0818 or write to us at
