Comment: Metropolitan Areas Need CIR
Eighty percent of the US population and ninety five percent of immigrants live in metropolitan areas. Metropolitan leaders from across the US made the case for comprehensive immigration reform at an event hosted by the Brookings Institution. The most extreme case is New York City, where sixty percent of the population consists of immigrants and their children. The vibrancy of the city's economy depends on a continual inflow of high-skilled immigrants as well as low-skilled immigrants who form the backbone of city's economy, and this is the case with all the cities to varying degrees. Many cities showcased their efforts to attract immigrants. You can see some of the presentations here. Share your thoughts by writing to

Focus: The United States EB-5 Investment Directory
ILW.COM is proud to announce The United States EB-5 Investment Directory. This publication is an EB-5 consumer targeted publication which will list all currently active United States EB-5 Regional Centers and serve as a guide and directory for foreign EB-5 agents and prospective investors alike. The major goal of this effort is to increase our clients’ visibility overseas and advertise their regional center’s project by placing effective advertising directly in the hands of effective foreign EB-5 agents as well as investors seeking EB-5 knowledge and the proper investment to implement their funds in an effort to migrate to the United States of America. This directory will be published on hard cover to mitigate the element of being handled as a pamphlet or brochure in an effort to increase tangible value and eliminate an instance of it being discarded. We are offering interested regional centers to reserve advertising space and utilize this effort to further maximize their visibility abroad. Advertising space is available in 2 Page, 4 Page and 6 Page formats. For more info, please write to
