  • Article: The EB-5 Regional Center Program: Rise of the Phoenix by Nicolai Hinrichsen, Stephen Yale-Loehr and Adam Schaye

    The EB-5 Regional Center Program: Rise of the Phoenix by Nicolai Hinrichsen, Stephen Yale-Loehr and Adam Schaye Introduction When Congress enacted the pilot EB-5 regional center program in 1992, it hoped that its job-creation and investor pooling features would spur economic growth and job creation in a way that the “stand-alone” direct EB-5 program had not.

  • Article: Florida's Anti-Immigrant Bills Follow a Decade-Long Trend by Leani Garcia Torres for Immigration Impact

    Dueling Court Orders May Decide Fate of President Biden's Title 42 Expulsions by Aaron Reichlin-Melnick In just under two years, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has carried out over 1.5 million rapid “expulsions” of asylum seekers and migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border under Title 42, a controversial public health law invoked by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    Analysis of New EB-5 Reform Bill Destined for Omnibus by March 11, 2022 by Robert Divine of Baker Donelson March 8, 2022 Insiders report that Senators Schumer and Grassley have agreed on a 39-page compromise EB-5 reform bill that will grandfather existing workers and re-start the regional center program for new investments with meaningful changes and some confusion.

    EB-5 Regional Center Program: On the Verge of Reauthorization by Nick Hinrichsen, Kristal Ozmun, and Stephen Yale-Loehr At long last, it appears Congress has heeded the call of anxious EB-5 investors, regional centers (RCs), developers, and other EB-5 industry stakeholders. The EB-5 Reform and Integrity Act of 2022 is attached to a massive spending bill that is likely to be passed this week to fund the U.S. government.
