    Blast from the Past: The Latest "New" Migrant Crossing Point in Arizona: A Bird's Eye View (April 24, 2006) by Kevin R. Johnson It appears that matters along the U.S./Mexico border have not changed that much.

    Dear USCIS, Izummi is no Longer the Law by By Matt Gordon I was recently asked to help out on a case where an EB-5 investor’s I-526 petition was denied, because USCIS claimed the option of the investor to redeem a portion of her investment in the form of realty violated the long-standing precedent of Matter of Izummi, 22 I. & N.
