Comment: Constitution-Free Agency

A Politico article argues that American Southwest resembles a modern-day police state due to the disregard for rule of law by US Border Patrol agency.



The countless stories I've heard of illegal stops and searches, bullying treatment and excessive use of force-including numerous unprovoked killings - by Border Patrol agents make it clear that the agency's many problems result from tremendous failures of leadership at every level... Agents do whatever they want, without fear of being disciplined by their superiors. And that's a real problem: No one - not Congress, not DHS, not U.S. Customs and Border Protection (Border Patrol's parent agency and a division of DHS) - is holding agents accountable when they violate the law.

US is a constitutional republic - attempts to protect its borders by violating its core constitutional principles undercuts the republic itself. Please let us know your thoughts by writing to us at editor@ilw.com.

individuals of high net-worth status and guarantee the attendance
of qualified individuals with the appropriate financial means of

    net-worth status, in specific, individuals that meet the
    necessary criteria for the EB-5 program.

  • Finely tuned filtration and scrubbing process to ensure the
    proper quality of attendees and mitigation of EB-5 broker and
    "window shopper" attendance.

    related to: travel schedule, hotel accommodations, program
    itinerary, refreshments, event marketing, event advertising,
    translation services, securing of venue, presentation aid
    assistance, post event follow ups and provision of contact
    information of attendees to presenting client post event.

  • 100% exclusivity: unlike foreign "exposition" type settings,
    we only execute events for individual clients at a time in order
    to completely eliminate any instance of competition on the day of
    presentation.

  • Organic leads: we ensure to only invite brand new attendees
    for our events in order to exclusively provide our clients with
    fresh leads as opposed to recycling contacts made from past.

  • An intimate ambiance: we purposely guarantee a minimum number
    of attendees ranging between 25-30 attendees in total per event
    in order to ensure all questions are answered thoroughly and that
    direct contact is established between the presenter and potential
    investor. 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.

  • An extremely competitive and moderate fair and flat cost that
    covers every notion associated with this service other than the
    departure and return flight from the U.S. to the overseas
    destination.

information about this service by directly contacting us. Please
be advised, our services are not limited to EB-5 business,
