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.
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.
