  • November 2 - Don’t Kill The Goose That Lays Golden Eggs

    November 2 - Don’t Kill The Goose That Lays Golden Eggs

    Comment: Don’t Kill The Goose That Lays Golden Eggs (1) Introduction (2) USCIS is Killing American Jobs (3) USCIS is Acting Against President Trump’s Immigration Priorities (4) USCIS is Anti Market and Anti India (but pro China!) (5) Conclusion: Fixing the Rule, What wont work, How to do it (1) Introduction USCIS is moving full steam ahead to kill the goose that lays the golden eggs - the EB5 program, a proven jobs generator for the US economy. USCIS threatens to finalize its Rule on EB5s in November, inter alia raising investment amounts substantially for immigration benefits. Increasing investment amounts negatively impacts all EB5 projects, both rural and urban. The only way at this time to stop USCIS is through the White House, not through Congress, see below. (2) USCIS is Killing American Jobs USCIS promises to drastically raise investment amounts for EB5, thereby curtailing EB5 job creation significantly. USCIS in its rule-making did NOT propose to increase US jobs requirements to 15 jobs for each $500,000 invested (from the current 10 jobs). The foregoing would have demonstrated that USCIS intended to foster US job creation. Instead, by increasing investment amounts without concomitantly increasing the number of American jobs required, USCIS seeks to reduce job-creation by the EB5 industry. USCIS seeks to reduce the amount of jobs created by more than half (from 10 to perhaps only 3) for each $500,000 invested (this is the implicit calculation in USCIS's Rule about to be finalized). The increased investment amounts per investor will necessarily crater the market in terms of numbers of investors, and thus devastate the EB5 industry's ability to support American job creation. USCIS is acting 180 degrees against the Administration's announced "Buy American, Hire American" policy goal, in thwarting the EB5 industry's ability to create American jobs. (3) USCIS is Acting Against President Trump’s Immigration Priorities The President has repeatedly said that he intends to work with Congress post-November 6th (the election date) to secure funding for The Wall, for which he received a mandate from the people two years ago. Congressional Republicans and Democrats have both indicated that they expect a conversation on border security in the lame-duck session during November/December. By deliberately timing the finalization of its EB5 Rule during these critical discussions on The Wall, USCIS is taking direct aim at the President's immigration priorities, by interposing a relatively small matter such as EB5 into negotiations between the President and Senate Democrats to the President's disadvantage (count on Sen. Schumer, the leader of Senate Democrats, to bring up EB5 during discussions with the President, since EB5 investment is critical to Mr. Schumer's constituents in New York City). Such holiday-period shenanigans also demonstrate USCIS's bad faith toward Congress by showing no concern for Congress's packed lame-duck schedule during Thanksgiving/Christmas. (4) USCIS is Anti Market and Anti India (but pro China!) Intelligent Indian inve...
