  • October 7 - Jobs Creating EB-5 Bill

    Comment: Jobs Creating EB-5 Bill
    The National Law Review reports that Senator Rand Paul has introduced a bill, Invest in Our Communities Act, S. 2122, in the Senate that builds on the success of the EB-5 Regional Center program. Here are the highlights:

    • It eliminates the counting of derivative family members towards the EB-5 quota, thus effectively increasing the visa numbers available for the EB-5 category.
    • It adds additional visa numbers to EB-5 category.
    • It keeps the investment amount of TEA investments unchanged at $500,000.
    • It mandates adjudication of petitions within 180 days
    • It adds a number of measures to protect the integrity of the program
    • It makes the program permanent

    Keeping the investment amount same, increasing the EB-5 quota, and speeding up processing are all commonsensical measures that will enable the EB-5 Regional Center program to create even more jobs than it already is. We applaud Senator Paul for introducing this bill and urge the congress to pass this bill instead of the Job Killer EB-5 Bill introduced earlier by Senators Grassley and Leahy.
