  • Nov 13 - Inaction and Consequences

    Comment: Inaction and Consequences
    In previous Comments we warned that the Democrats cannot take the Latino vote for granted, given the less than stellar record of President Obama on immigration. Now, following the midterm election, some pro-immigration Democrats associate the President's delay in enacting executive action on immigration with election results in Colorado and Florida. In a recent interview Rep. Luis Gutierrez said

    "So what do we get? We lost the Senate anyway and infuriated, angered, disillusioned lots of voters that might well have come out to vote in the Florida election and in the Colorado election. Not to mention other elections that might have been close,"

    Meekness and hesitancy are not the mark of a great statesman. We urge the President to act on immigration with courage and without further delay.

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 relative fees as typically witnessed in the Beijing EB-5 industry.
    • Fully ethical and SEC compliant services related solely to marketing which does not involve the selling or facilitation of security placement.
