EB-5 in the News
The most buzzed-about EB-5 article this week is a Washington Times piece: “Immigration staffers pressured to rush visas for wealthy investors” (Nov. 18, 2013). The story provides an interesting look behind the scenes of EB-5 adjudications at the California Service Center. Those who have waited months upon months and then years upon years for paperwork to be reviewed may find it hard to believe that the ISOs could feel rushed, or that finally appealing to supervisors/Congressman to help move things along could backfire by pushing those rushed ISOs into resentment and suspicion. This article gives disgruntled insiders’ views, and may encourage us to have more sympathy for adjudicators in their complex task — and perhaps to share their suspicion when some groups appear to succeed in orchestrating preferential treatment.
