  • July 14 - Murdoch Says Trump Wrong

    Comment: Murdoch Says Trump Wrong
    CNN reports that media mogul and key Republican kingmaker, Rupert Murdoch, has attacked Donald Trump on immigration. He says that Donald Trump is wrong about immigrants, and points out that Mexican immigrants, as with all immigrants, have much lower crime rates than the native born. We invite all the elder statesmen in the Republican party to condemn Mr. Trump and push him out of the Republican party-Xenophobia has no place in civilized political discourse.

    Focus: EB5 India Opportunity
    India Opportunity:

    • India saw the 43,000 millionaires leave the country in ten years ending in 2013-second only to China.
    • India is already in second tier of 7 EB5 countries which come after China. It is the fastest growing of the top eight (including China) EB-5 markets in the world.
    • India is the only competitor to China in the long run in EB-5. No other country can even come close to China.
    • India is fully English speaking country-no translation needed even for official documents.
    • Indian regulatory structures are more robust than China. India source of funds will be easier to handle for USCIS as compared to China source of funds.

    India Lead Generation:
    • Supported by follow-up by US qualified immigration attorney on the ground in India, along with a securities team fully qualified under US law
