  • Article: As Demand for the US EB-5 visa continues to rise in India, Distinctions are made with China By Mona Shah, Esq. and Hermione Krumm, Esq.

    As Demand for the US EB-5 visa continues to rise in India, Distinctions are made with China by Mona Shah, Esq. and Hermione Krumm, Esq. As the Times of India publish yet another article on the increase in the popularity of EB-5 visas, the Chinese media report on the rapid slowdown of a once booming industry. For years the EB-5 industry has been bolstered by wealthy Chinese investors, but the heyday for the Chinese EB-5 market seems to be ending as new applicants appear wary of heightened uncertainties surrounding the program (legislative and regulatory) as well as the ever-increasing visa backlog facing the Chinese nationals that has been anticipated to be 10+ years. The EB-5 Immigrant Investment Program was created by the US Congress in 1990 to stimulate the economy through job creation and capital investment. Between fiscal year 2010 and 2015 alone, over $19.6 billion of foreign direct investment (“FDI”) flowed into the United States under EB-5 from across the world and supported over 414,000 American jobs. [1] Despite the EB-5 program’s tangible benefits, particularly for Indian citizens, India only comprised a 1.1% share of the overall EB-5 market in 2015. By comparison, China dominated the overall market with 83.5% or 8,156 approvals. Even Vietnam, which India dwarfs in population size, commanded a greater share of the market with 2.9% of approvals in 2015. In FY2016, India stood out as only the sixth most common country of origin for EB-5 investors. Given India’s immense population size and robust pace of economic growth, there was vast room for growth in the EB-5 program in India – indeed it was only a matter of time before Investors at the very least, brought it on par with China. The shifts in the top six countries for EB-5 demand is particularly noticeable in the most recently published analysis by IIUSA (the national trade association for the EB-5 Regional Center Program), on the latest Form I-526 (Immigrant Petition by Alien Entrepreneur) data by investor’s country of chargeability for fiscal year (FY) 2017, the demand from China has been dampening since FY 2016, with every subsequent year a decreasing number of filings. The United States is the second-most common destination for Indian migrants For Indian immigrants, the EB-5 program makes a lot of sense. The United States is the second-most common destination for Indian migrants, representing approximately two million of the total 14 million Indian migrants worldwide. Compared to both the overall native-born and foreign-born populations in the United States, Indian immigrants are on average significantly higher educated, more likely to be employed and have a higher household income. These statistics are reflected in the high usage of Employment-Based Green Cards and skilled occupation-based H1-B visas amongst Indian citizens. According to the Department of State, Employment-Based Green Cards for Indian citizens are b...

    DHS and DOL Propose Modernizing Recruitment Requirements for H-2B Employers to Protect U.S. Workers The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in conjunction with the Department of Labor (DOL), has published a joint notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that would modernize the recruitment requirements for employers seeking H-2B nonimmigrant workers to make it easier for U.S. workers to find and fill these open jobs.

    Article: New USCIS EB-5 Redemption Policy Update By Carolyn Lee

    New USCIS EB-5 Redemption Policy Update by Carolyn Lee On October 30, 2018, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services updated its Policy Manual on the point of immigrant investors and debt arrangements as announced on the Policy Alert of the same date. [1] Since May 2018, there have been four EB-5 related Policy Manual revisions out of a total of ten covering all areas of immigration. Clearly, EB-5 is a special focus area for USCIS. We can expect the scrutiny to continue based on Director Francis Lee Cissna’s June 2018 Senate testimony and the EB-5 “pre-rule” the Department of Homeland Security issued in the Fall 2018 regulatory agenda. [2] This article summarizes the Policy Manual revisions and highlights the recurring due process problems we see with these fast-coming EB-5 Policy Manual revisions. Impermissible Debt Arrangements: Denial Based Repayments Now Banned? The Policy Manual as revised now states a broad prohibition: Any agreement between the immigrant investor and the new commercial enterprise that provide the investor with a contractual right to repayment is an impermissible redemption agreement. [3] (emphasis added) USCIS currently permits agreements allowing redemptions when the immigrant investor receives a denial of his or her I-526 petition or immigrant visa/adjustment of status application. In the author’s opinion, this allowance is consistent with governing authority as a denied investor is no longer “seeking to enter the United States for the purpose of engaging in a new commercial enterprise” [4] under the statute. Similarly, such an investor also has no actionable “petition for classification as an alien entrepreneur” [5] under the regulations. Accordingly, USCIS’s policy to date has been consistent with existing law. With this new language, we now have a question mark looming over the vast majority of EB-5 projects that currently allow redemptions for denied investors, including projects with exemplar approval. Unless USCIS provides clarification soon that denial redemptions are not prohibited debt arrangements, the industry will be evaluating potentially mass amendments with attending securities and investor management implications. If USCIS did not intend to raise this question, this is surely an instance where a clear, prospective effective date set after a solid comment period would have served all. More on that is further below. Are Investments Like Marriage? As should be expected in redemption-related guidance, Matter of Izummi’s shadow presides. The Policy Manual revision, though, highlights a fundamental flaw in Izummi’s reasoning. We now have new language freely borrowed from Izummi: An agreement evidencing a preconceived intent to exit the investment as soon as possible after removing conditions on permanent residence may constitute an impermissible debt arrangement. … In general, the petitioner may not enter into the agreement knowing that he or she has a willing buyer at a certain time and for a certain price. [6] Preconceived intent to leave the marriage once the green card is obtained is the very definition of marriage fraud. But is this the right analogy for investment? In the EB-5 context, for an investment to be “at risk,” the investor must have the intent to make the investment knowing that it may gain or lose. The notion of “gain” in an investment relates to gain on top of the principal. [7] So the preconceived hope of getting the principal capital plus a return is actually a requirement of EB-5 eligibility. Accordingly, the marriage petition analogy is misplaced in Izummi and fares no better in the Policy Manual. On the notion of preconceived intent, USCIS has also proven to be overly zealous in finding disqualifying evidence “suggestive of a prohibited redemption mechanism,” [8] and “indicative of a prohibited debt arrangement.” [9] USCIS’s finding along these lines were ruled errors in two federal court decisions cited in the Policy Manual Alert. [10] The key takeaway here ...

  • Article: Trump’s Illegal Ban on Asylum Seekers Solves Nothing By Royce Murray for Immigration Impact

    Trump’s Illegal Ban on Asylum Seekers Solves Nothing by Royce Murray for Immigration Impact In response to a much over-hyped caravan of migrants slowly trekking north through Mexico, the Trump administration announced new rules to block people from applying for asylum if they cross between the ports of entry along the Southern border. The rules take effect immediately, setting the stage for an utterly avoidable crisis that will put people’s lives at risk. The asylum ban was made through two bureaucratic steps. First, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice jointly published an interim regulation that creates a new bar to asylum. President Trump then issued an accompanying proclamation that applies to anyone who has entered the United States along the Southern border between the ports of entry. Those who defy the proclamation will be denied the opportunity to seek asylum. The change does not apply to individuals who enter between ports of entry on the Northern border or to unaccompanied children who enter without a parent. This asylum ban is illegal. U.S. law clearly states that any person who arrives in the United States—whether or not at a port of entry—can apply for asylum . Many individuals who enter between the ports of entry and seek asylum do so because their alternatives are limited. Some at imminent risk of grave harm are desperate to get protection from the closest possible place along the U.S. border—which may not be a port of entry. Although the proclamation directs asylum seekers to ports of entry, many who have tried to approach an official port of entry have been turned away or told that the port is full. This generates weeks-long waits in precarious conditions on the Mexico side of the border. Those who cannot afford the risk of waiting often cross between the ports and immediately present themselves to a DHS official to ask for asylum. Within hours of the proclamation’s announcement, advocates challenged the government’s issuance of the rules without providing the public advanced notice and an opportunity to comment on it, as well as the ways in which the asylum ban violates the clear letter of the law. It is legal to seek asylum . Congress clearly established that it is legal to do so between the ports of entry. No stroke of the presidential pen can change that. Instead of restricting asylum and placing people’s li...
