  • Article: EB-5 Roundup May 2019 “The Battle for EB-5 Survival—Part 1” By Mona Shah, Esq. and Hermione M. Krumm, Esq.

    EB-5 Roundup May 2019 “The Battle for EB-5 Survival—Part 1” by Mona Shah, Esq. and Hermione M. Krumm, Esq. As the EB-5 industry braces itself for the onslaught of a brutal Winter, efforts continue to bring an early Spring. For the first time in the history of EB-5, we are witnessing a unification of the industry, a confederacy against the common enemy. Some key players have taken a bow and left the stage or have shifted their focus from EB-5 to alternative routes, those left know that it must be a battle to the death, as no action would certainly signal the demise of the program as we know it. It would certainly help to have a dragon or two (or a way to teleport USCIS to the Wall) we know that the wheel can be broken if not by Valyrian steel, by sheer will power. Below is a round up of what’s been going on in EB-5: 1. Winter is Coming……The Regulation Progress As Winter approaches, and the OMB sneezes, EB-5 marketers rise up in a frenzy! The Spring 2019 OMB Unified Agenda of Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions was released yesterday, May 22, 2019, with updated timetables for the three EB-5 regulations in progress. RIN1615-AC07 EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program Modernization , with proposed changes to TEAs and the minimum investment amount, is still listed as Pending Review by OMB, but moves the date for Final Rule to May 2019. Considering the end of the month is fast approaching, it is hard to predict anything would happen before June 1. RIN 1615-AC11 Regional Center Program Regulation, with proposed changes to regional center designation requirements and process: the date for Notice of Proposed Rulemaking has been advanced to March 2020. RIN 1615-AC26 EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program Realignment , sets the date for Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to March 2020. This is the new proposal brought to the industry’s attention last Fall and it aims to “solicit public input on proposals that would increase monitoring and oversight, encourage investment in rural areas, redefine components of the job creation requirement, and define conditions for regional center designations and operations”. Although there is no concreate plan published as of now, the proposal showcases the agency’s heightened interest in integrity, as confirmed by both USCIS Director L. Francis Cissna’s testimony on EB-5 before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary in June 2018 and his speech with the IIUSA directors during their closed-door meeting in October 2018. To briefly explain, the regulatory agenda, published in the fall and spring, is a semiannual summary of existing and projected regulations and completed actions of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). [1] 2. The North, South, East and West Unite! --“The EB-5 Industry Rallies” On May 17, 2019, a confederacy of EB-5 stakeholder groups (including IIUSA, AILA, EB-5 Investment Coalition, Rural Alliance, Real Estate Roundtable and U.S. Chamber...

  • Article: Asylum: What You Need to Know By Samantha Chasworth, Esq. and David Nachman, Esq.

    Asylum: What You Need to Know by Samantha Chasworth, Esq. and David Nachman, Esq. Are you afraid of returning to your home country? If so, you may be eligible for Asylum. Note that filing for Asylum is different if you are in Removal Proceedings. In this article, we will address filing for Asylum for those who are not in Removal Proceedings, otherwise known as affirmatively. Eligibility for Asylum is based on your past persecution, or fear of future persecution, on account of your race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. This fear must be particular to you. It is not enough that your home country is generally unsafe. You must be able to explain why you are particularly unsafe. To file for Asylum, you will need to mail your documents to the USCIS Service Center. In this submission, you must include an application, Form I-589, as well as supporting documents. There is no filing fee. These supporting documents will need to corroborate your claim. This can be in the form of affidavits by others who have experienced similar treatment or those who are familiar with your situation. Other supporting documents include country condition reports, news articles, and photos, to name only a few. The more documents you can provide, the stronger your case can be. You must file for Asylum within your first year of entering the United States. If you file, even a day l...

  • Article: Protecting The Green Card When Taking Extended Trips From The U. S.; Entitlement To 10 Day Or 60 Day Grace Periods For Nonimmigrant Workers; Public Charge Danger Signals By Alan Lee, Esq.

    Protecting The Green Card When Taking Extended Trips From The U. S.; Entitlement To 10 Day Or 60 Day Grace Periods For Nonimmigrant Workers; Public Charge Danger Signals by Alan Lee, Esq. 1. Protecting the green card. After obtaining the green card, permanent residents many times leave the U. S. for extended periods of time, placing their green cards in jeopardy during the inspection process when reentering the country. What is there to do except to hang back or try to somehow get into the line of the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer that one thinks will afford the most favorable inspection? The general rules are that a permanent resident should be maintaining a main domicile in the U. S., which generally means over 6 months of each year; that trips of over 180 days may subject the individual to harder inspection as an alien “seeking admission”; and that frequent trips of extended duration even if not over 180 days may still cause challenge to the right to keep the green card. What can one generally expect from CBP where extended absences are concerned? Usually the first step will be a warning and a notation in the passport of the person’s extended absence. The applicant may be instructed to apply for a reentry permit. The reentry permit allows a permanent resident to be outside the U. S. for up...

  • May 22 - Visa Bulletin Projections

    May 22 - Visa Bulletin Projections

    Comment: Visa Bulletin Projections Charles Oppenheim of the Department of State made a presentation earlier this month offering predictions on waiting times for China, Vietnam and India. We disagree with Mr. Oppenheim's predictions for the following reasons: 1) Bad Data: Calculations for current Visa Bulletin rely approximately 90% on USCIS data and 10% on Department of State data. While the DOS data is reliable, the USCIS data is notoriously unreliable and varies wildly. Bad USCIS data was responsible for Visa Gate a decade ago which resulted in issuing hundreds of thousands of EADs. USCIS has poor data management across its multiple locations and frequently revises its data. Mr. Oppenheim has repeatedly complained about the poor quality of the USCIS data and the consequent difficulty in basing projections upon them, and he is correct. His presentation makes liberal use of the word "estimated" when referring to USCIS data precisely because of its poor quality, and consequent wild variations in predictions therefrom. 2) Bad Methodology: The methodology used at the Department of State uses straight line projections based on the past data for a country. This assumes that the rest of the world will continue to behave the same for the future as it has in the past. It does not take into account Death, Denial, Divorce and Drop-outs which materially impact waiting times. The projections also assume an approval rate of 100% for I-526 applications which obviously will not be the case, particularly for countries like India. Advanced mathematical tools like Game Theory and Monte Carlo simulations need to be used to take into account the relevant factors--and the result would be ranges and scenarios--not specific numbers for waiting times. Due to improper methodology, we object to any prediction by anyone, within DOS or outside, if such prediction is a number instead of a range, and if such prediction does not PROMINENTLY offer different scenarios with different ranges. [Our beef on retrogression projections is that folks in the EB5 industry seem to be drinking their own kool-aid, when they assert that straight line projections ending in point solutions have probative value.] Immigration Daily's Two Cents on visa availability predictions follows three rules: (i) We base our predictions on anecdotal data (which is certainly better than relying on USCIS, as Mr. Oppenheim is compelled to do); (ii) we disclaim any suggestion that our predictions are authoritative, and assert merely that they are based on market data (instead of government data) and (iii) we offer only general directions, mentioning numbers only where necessary as a contrast to numbers by DOS and others - so here is our take, following the aforementioned three rules: a) China: Based on our understanding of the above factors our best judgement is that Mr. Oppenheim is under-estimating the waiting time for China. He estimates it to be 16.5 years. We think that this presupposes that the rest of the world will not use more EB-5 visas in the coming years. We expect the EB-5 markets in the rest of the world to grow considerably, thus dramatically reducing the number of visas available for Chinese investors waiting for their visa. We expect the waiting time for Chinese investors investing to...

  • Article: EB-5 Reform, Immigration Reform By Suzanne Lazicki

    Article: EB-5 Reform, Immigration Reform By Suzanne Lazicki

    EB-5 Reform, Immigration Reform by Suzanne Lazicki Today, IIUSA and others published a letter to the Senate and House Judiciary Committees laying out “consensus reform concepts” recommended for new EB-5 legislation. I’m heartened to see effort toward reform and reauthorization, and saddened by the letter’s content. Ideally, a consensus will appear to balance the interests of a variety of groups. I don’t see that here. Two recommendations particularly deserve input from a broader base of stakeholders: Recommended investment amounts. The letter proposes $800,000 minimum for investment in a TEA, and $900,000 for investment outside a TEA – replacing the current 50% discount with a 12% discount. Competitive advantage requires that a feature be both rare and valuable. The letter offers a concession that TEAs can be more strictly defined so as to make them more rare than now, but then redefines the incentive to make TEA designation less valuable. The net result is clear for projects located in genuinely distressed areas that struggle to complete against prosperous urban areas. (I don’t see expedited processing being an effective additional incentive, considering USCIS’s likely inability to deliver such benefit, or visa set asides for reasons discussed below.) The recommended investment amounts don’t look like an attempt to compromise with interests outside big cities, and also don’t look like a compromise with reform advocates. How likely is Congress to accept a proposal that not only hardly increases but would actually lower the standard EB-5 investment amount set back in 1990? The recommended investment amounts have the advantage that they’re feasible and wouldn’t destroy the market, but are too-obviously the status quo. Where’s the attempt to sell the recommendations to people who want to be seen voting for modernization and reform? Recommended visa set-asides. This is framed as an additional TEA incentive, but I am doubtful. The letter recommends setting aside 30% of visas annually for TEA investments, with the set-asides applying immediately to new I-526 filed after enactment, and not allowed to apply to petitions pending on the date of enactment. I foresee that this will act as a TEA incentive only for a short time, until the set-aside categories build up backlogs of their own. However, set-asides would allow raising new capital by taking visas from backlogged investors and offering them to new investors. The tens of thousands of people already in line for a visa would see the pool of visas available to them reduced by 30%, for the sake of having 30% of visas set aside in...

In light of the most recent and devastating revelations by Charlie Oppenheim, Chief of the Visa Controls Office at the US Department of State, on the EB-5 visa backlog for big contributor countries, Indian and Chinese nationals may feel more than ever that the path to U.S. citizenship is fraught with thorns and thistles. Is the door to the U.S. completely closed or closing for aspiring immigrant investors from India and China? What alternative solutions are there, spanning from nonimmigrant visas to immigrant visas, for foreign nationals that wish to come to the States legally and fast? In the 81st episode of the EB-5 investment Voice series - the first and only Podcast series that focuses on the US immigrant investor visa, EB-5 and foreign direct investment, Mona Shah, Esq. invites Rohit Turkhud, Esq. of Fakhoury Global to discuss the ramifications of the EB-5 visa backlog facing Indian and Chinese nationals and the available long-term leveraging visas to beat the backlog and get to the States. Rohit Turkhud is a 34-year veteran of U.S. immigration law practitioner with an extensive background in employment-based immigration. Rohit was a contributing author on The PERM Book and hosted a prime-time LIVE immigration show on a national network for six years. Is EB-5 still viable for an Indian or Chinese Investor??

  • Article: What to Expect and When to Expect it this H-1B Adjudication Season By Sheila Danzig

    What to Expect and When to Expect it this H-1B Adjudication Season by Sheila Danzig USCIS has completed selecting the 85,000 H-1B petitions to be adjudicated for approval for cap-subject petitions for FY 2020. Those selected that filed for premium processing may begin receiving notice this week as to their approval status with the anticipated date of completion set at June 4th. Case adjudication for those who did not file under premium processing will begin early to mid-June and often takes months. Last year, adjudication for FY 2019 – which began October 1 st, 2018 – extended into the 2019 calendar year. If you are unsure of whether or not your case was selected, check the account activity on the account of the check written for the H-1B processing fee. If it has been cashed, your case was selected in the lottery. When notice arrives of the status of the case, do not be alarmed if you receive an RFE or Denial. This is NOT the end of the road.
