Comment: Supreme Court Considers Redistricting Case

Sean Trende at RealClearPolitics writes that the Supreme Court has decided to take up potentially the most important redistricting case in 50 years. The plaintiffs in the case have asked the court to clarify that only citizens should be counted for purposes of drawing legislative districts. Currently, legislative districts are drawn in accordance with population and not the number of voting age citizens; and the number of voting age citizens per Congressional district varies widely across districts. If the court were to find for the plaintiff, virtually every legislative and congressional district in the country would have to be redrawn.

Redistricting has been a tool used by Republicans and Democrats alike to create "safe" districts to maximize their chances of winning districts. A wholesale redistricting would have far reaching consequences for the upcoming elections. The author, who is an election analyst, projects the possible implications of such redistricting for upcoming Congressional and Presidential elections.

Focus: EB-5 Events for Chinese Students

Chinese international students are coming to the US in dramatically increased numbers. The explosion in undergrad Chinese students started in 2008 and continues. For EB-5 purposes Chinese students offer the best prospects. We have been conducting events in 2014 educating Chinese Students on EB-5 in New York City. We can conduct similar events in six other cities across US. For each city we promote the event to multiple campuses across the metropolitan region; this can vary from ten to twenty campuses per city. The time frame for the events is determined based on the academic calendar. These are short evening events that require a short single night stay trip from the sponsoring Regional Center or law firm. During the educational event covering the students' immigration options the sponsor makes a short presentation about their project or law firm. The event structure allows for plenty of networking opportunities with students. These events are available only to Regional Centers that use Regulation-D or to law firms, and we require clients to consult a securities attorney before signing up for these events. For more information please contact us at tel: (212)545-0818 or write to us at webmaster@ilw.com.
