EB-5 Investor Visas (Regional Centers)
Carl Shusterman writes "The beauty of investing in a regional center is that the investor does not have to be involved in the day-to-day operation of the business. It is not even necessary that the investor reside in the same state where the investment is located. The investor may continue to work in his own field, may own and operate his/her own business completely independent of the regional center, or if he/she can afford it, need not work at all."

Dear Weekly Editor:
If I may dare to change the subject a little bit and discuss immigration rather than immigrants for a moment... Ref. the excellent and exhaustive article by Mr. Siskind about foreign medical graduates... home residency requirement (IW 3/31/08). Seems to me I remember that they can actually return to the U.S. while pending their 2 year "outside the country" time from time to time such as a visitor visa. Years ago, I seem to remember a case where the graduate claimed to come to tour and visit. He actually used the time here for business, which is common for many visitors. Anybody remember that?


Dear Weekly Editor:
I am so tired of all these so called americans saying deport make them leave why is everyone so down on hispanics? I am an american married to an hispanic we have a daughter when we tried to get him legal they deported him. We have not seen him for over 3 years,the only law he broke was being illegal. We have followed all the rules, filled out all the proper paperwork, paid the money and yet my husband is still in Mexico, my daughter is without a father. How can anyone believe it is better for a family to be broken apart? How many of these whites or blacks will work out in the high temps in a field for little pay? None! As far as them not paying taxes,getting food stamps,etc they must prove that they have legal status.We are not supporting them, we are supporting all the lazy americans and young girls having babies.One more question how many hispanics are on the terriosts list? We let people from Iran,Irqa, Cuba and other foreign nations here to blow us up or kill us, but people say get rid of hispanics ,you need to wake up because all you smokers would have no tobacco if hispanics were not out in fields picking it and the same goes for fruits and vegtables too. Wake up America it is not hispanics who are hurting us, you need look at the other foreigners here.
