Comment: Republicans for CIR
Politico reports that the Partnership for a New American Economy, headed by the former New York City mayor, Michael Bloomberg and News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch, has launched a new initiative "Reason for Reform" making the economic case for overhauling the immigration system in 2017. The group has published detailed economic reports highlighting the economic contribution of immigration to each state and is releasing them at events across all 50 states.

This effort will give cover and hopefully courage to those in the Republican party that have stood by as their party has been hijacked by an anti-immigrationist standard bearer.

ILW offers limited China EB5 capabilities to bring US Regional Centers and law firms before Chinese migration agents and Chinese immigrants. Our capabilities are based partly on Chinese Immigration Daily (with 2,000+ subscribers after 11 months of publication), partly on our industry connections, and partly on our Taipei-based representative who travels as needed to the mainland on EB5 business for our clients - all of which add up to a modest capability which could be of particular use to (a) relatively new players in China EB5 and/or (b) relatively small players in China EB5. For more information please contact us at tel: (212)545-0818 or write to us at webmaster@ilw.com or request more information here.
