On October 14, 2016, a briefing on the USCIS EB-5 Investment Visa Program was held on Capitol Hill. The briefing was held in a panel format with individual presentations followed by a question and answer period for Congressmen and Senators. Perhaps it is most worthy to note who sponsored the briefing.

Speakers included Theresa Brown of the Bipartisan Policy Center, Gregory Wing or the Education Fund of America, Angelique Bruner, of EB-5 Capital, and Dan Healy of Civitas Capital.

Panel presentations included subjects such as

  • How EB-5 projects has helped to transform the Washington D.C. economic landscape.
  • How U.S. tax-payers benefit from EB-5 investments, both short and long term.
  • How EB-5 funding has advanced the building of charter schools.
  • How EB-5 investments have impacted state and local projects.

During the Q&A, several of the popular myths and misunderstandings about the EB-5 program were discussed and addressed.
