Comment: Turncoat Rubio
ThinkProgress chronicles Marco Rubio's shift of immigration positions from a vocal and active support of Comprehensive Immigration Reform to the advocacy of sole focus on border security.

By embracing the anti-immigrationist wing of the Republican Party in a cynically calculated attempt to get support for the Republican primary election, Marco Rubio has betrayed not only his immigrant heritage but also his adopted country that is built on immigration. He should be ashamed for this flip-flop - not be considered for the honor of being the President of this great country.

Focus: EB-5 Investors from Persian Gulf
ILW will customize a Persian Gulf marketing event that will be exclusive to your organization and will be tailored to generate business relative to the EB-5 industry directly to your firm. Giving China's retrogression, it is wise to have an alternative source of investors. After conducting several successful events in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Doha, Manama, and Muscat we are offering a Six City Persian Gulf Tours covering all these cities.

We research and target select regions and individuals of high net-worth status to guarantee an attendance of screened individuals with the financial means of being able to participate in an EB-5 investment.

What we Offer

  • Guaranteed attendance of only screened individuals of high net-worth status, specifically, individuals that meet the necessary criteria for the EB-5 program.
  • Finely tuned filtration and scrubbing process to ensure the proper quality of attendees.
  • Complete strategic planning of all logistical implementation related to: travel schedule, program itinerary, refreshments, event marketing, event advertising, translation services, securing of venue, presentation aid assistance, post event follow ups and provision of contact information of attendees to presenting client post event.
  • 100% exclusivity. Unlike foreign "exposition" type settings, we only execute events for one client at a time in order to completely eliminate any instance of competition on the day of presentation.
  • Organic leads: we ensure only brand new attendees for our events. This allows for exclusively and fresh leads as opposed to recycling contacts made from past.
  • An intimate ambiance: we purposely guarantee a minimum of 25 attendees in total per event in order to ensure all questions are answered thoroughly and that direct contact is established between the presenter and potential investor. In addition, we ensure that each potential investor has an opportunity to sit down with the presenter in a private 1 on 1 sit down in immediately after the presentation portion which increases transparency for the potential investor.
  • A unique opportunity for professionals that participate in this service to convert as many possible investors without paying a single cent in commission or any contingent fees as typically witnessed in the China EB-5 industry.
  • Fully ethical and SEC compliant services related solely to marketing which does not involve the selling or facilitation of security placement.
  • An extremely competitive and moderate fair and flat cost that covers every notion associated with this service other than your travel costs.


We urge all those who are interested to obtain further information about this service to directly contact our office at 212.545.0818 or e-mail us at webmaster@ilw.com.
