Texas Group files lawsuit to remove the expired Regional Center category from the EB-5 visa program.

I just read an article and did some research yesterday, and it seems that the Regional Center Program has EXPIRED. See link to the article at Congress botched the regional center expansion.

Just a few days ago, I wrote about the fact that the regional center category has expired. See link to article at http://eb5-expert.blogspot.com/2016/10/it-seems-that-regional-center-program.html 

The USCIS doesn't seem to have understood this little detail, so now a Texas Group  has filed a lawsuit to COMPEL the USCIS to shut down the Regional Center category, which expired in September 2016. See link to the article at Texas Group files suit to shut down regional center program.
 EB-5 visa investors who're interested in safely and profitably getting a green card should always invest in a GENUINE Direct Investment Business.
For EB-5 visa investors, the Direct Investment route is safe and easy, and the minimum investment amount for Direct Investment is $500,000.
The annual return on equity from regional centers is usually about 1% and the chances of capital loss are very high due to the conflict of interest and securities fraud, while annual the return on equity in direct investments usually exceeds 10% and the chances of capital loss are low due to the absence of conflict of interest and fraud.
EB-5 visa investors who're interested in safely and profitably getting a green card should invest in a GENUINE Direct Investment Business.

In contrast to the CEO's of regional centers who routinely violate securities laws, commit securities fraud, and engage in conflict of interest, we at Smart Business Broker, Inc. do not charge junk fees or use the investment funds of EB-5 visa investors to pay illegal commissions to unlicensed brokers. We have a strict policy of zero fraud and conflict of interest, and actually offer this guarantee in writing to our clients.
We offer our EB-5 visa investor clients a written guarantee of full disclosure of material facts, and have an open books policy, while regional center CEO's will usually refuse to offer this guarantee, as they usually violate securities laws and engage in conflict of interest too.

EB-5 visa seekers should remember that Genuine Direct Investment businesses are THE BEST option to get the EB-5 visa quickly, safely and usually profitably for the following reasons:
1. Faster processing and approval times.
2. Easy exit strategy.
3. Investors usually get a much higher Return on Investment.
4. Investors usually get a much higher Capital gain, whereas regional center investors usually get capital losses.
5. Our clients have a 100% approval rate of I-526 and I-829, while those who choose regional centers or other partnerships don't.
6. Our clients have very little risk as we conduct extensive due diligence and work hard to prevent fraud and conflict of interest, whereas regional centers and partnerships are overrun with fraud and conflict of interest.
7. Full control of business and capital, which helps prevent fraud, conflict of interest and losses.
EB-5 visa investors need to remember that we offer THE BEST service when it comes to offering a turnkey solution for the following reasons:
1. Our EB-5 visa investors ALWAYS have control of their business and their money. Those who choose regional centers and partnerships usually have to kiss their money goodbye, and are STUCK for 5-9 years with no control over their money and a very high risk of capital loss.
2. We offer a written guarantee of freedom from fraud and conflict of interest, whereas our competitors and regional centers don't offer this guarantee.
3. We offer a written guarantee of FULL disclosure of material facts on an ongoing basis, whereas our competitors and regional centers don't offer this guarantee.
4. We offer a written guarantee of full fee refund in case a client is rejected due to our team's fault, while our competitors and regional centers don't offer this guarantee because they are incompetent and dishonest.
5. Since 2004, our clients have NEVER been denied at the I-526 and I-829 stage, and have NEVER suffered operating or capital losses, and have usually earned a high Return on Equity because of our focus on due diligence and our extensive efforts to reduce risk by preventing fraud and conflict of interest.
6. We owe a fiduciary duty to our EB-5 visa investor clients, while those who sell regional center and partnership securities usually don't owe fiduciary duties to EB-5 visa investors. In plain words, we are required by law to put our clients interests first, and we do so because it helps us more than it helps our clients! We advise our clients diligently and help them make smart decisions.
7. We're the ONLY firm that actually encourages our clients to always stay in full control of their business and their funds at every stage as this helps us reduce the potential for fraud, embezzlement and litigation.

It seems that the Regional Center Program has expired and EB-5 visa investors can now get EB-5 visas only through Direct Investments.


I just read an article and did some research yesterday, and it seems that the Regional Center Program has EXPIRED. See link to the article at Congress botched the regional center expansion. 

It seems that even a law firm that deals with regional center has the same concern, and they're trying to be optimistic about the status of Regional Centers in the EB-5 visa program, but it seems that the fact is, Regional Centers are now OUT of the EB-5 visa program and there's very little chance that the majority of them will ever get back in, and even if they did get back in, it'd take them at least a year to get back into the EB-5 visa program. See link at http://www.eb5insights.com/2016/10/05/congressional-research-service-analyzes-validity-of-eb-5-program-extension/

See also http://cis.org/north/doubt-cast-extension-eb-5-crs-opinion and the CRS memo itself at Congressional Research Service Memo explaining why Regional Center Program has expired.

If it IS true that regional centers are no longer legal, WHAT does this mean for the 20,000 EB-5 visa investors who've invested money with the regional centers?

It means that every single regional center is now ILLEGAL. 

It means that USCIS CANNOT and WILL NOT process any more I-526 petitions for EB-5 visa investors that were filed through regional centers.

It means that 20,000 EB-5 visa investors lost hundreds of MILLIONS of dollars in Attorney fees AND will now have to go through litigation to get their money back.

It means that several developers will end up seeing their worthless projects go bankrupt because most Senators and Congressmen now OPPOSE regional centers, and there is NO WAY the current regional center program will be allowed to even get past the Senate Judiciary Committee.

EB-5 visa investors who're interested in safely and profitably getting a green card should invest in a GENUINE Direct Investment Business.

Why is a Genuine Direct Investment Business the SAFEST option for EB-5 visa investors?

EB-5 visa investors who're interested in safely and profitably getting a green card should invest in a GENUINE Direct Investment Business and avoid regional centers that pay peanuts and illegally market and sell securities in the US and abroad.
 
In contrast to the dishonest CEO's of regional centers who routinely violate securities laws, commit securities fraud, and engage in conflict of interest, we at Smart Business Broker, Inc. don't charge junk fees or use the investment funds of EB-5 visa investors to pay illegal commissions to unlicensed brokers. We've a strict policy of zero fraud and conflict of interest, and actually offer a written guarantee of freedom from fraud and conflict of interest to our clients, while Regional Center executives will NEVER give a written guarantee of freedom from fraud and conflict of interest to their Investors. 
Not only do we offer our EB-5 visa investor clients a written guarantee of full disclosure of material facts, we also have an open books policy, while regional center CEO's will usually refuse to offer this guarantee, as they usually violate securities laws and engage in conflict of interest. 
 
Moreover, unlike regional center executives and attorneys who illegally offer and sell regional centers' securities, we don't engage in conflict of interest, due to which our EB-5 visa investor clients are able to PROFITABLY create 10 jobs, because their money is invested in a business instead of being used to pay commissions and line the pockets of friends and family members of regional center owners.
 
EB-5 visa seekers should remember that Genuine Direct Investment businesses are THE BEST option to get the EB-5 visa quickly, safely and usually profitably for the following reasons:
1.    Faster processing and approval times.
2.    Easy exit strategy.

Try finding a regional center or partnership that boasts of this record.
6.    We are quite objective in our assessments, and owe a fiduciary duty to our EB-5 visa investor clients, while those who sell regional center and partnership securities usually do not owe fiduciary duties to EB-5 visa investors. In plain words, we are required by law to put our clients interests first, and we do so because it helps us more than it helps our clients! We advise our clients diligently and help them make solid decisions.

Are Regional Centers illegally offering and selling securities to EB-5 visa investors in India?


I just read a highly misleading article (see link http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/nri/visa-and-immigration/1200-indians-queue-up-to-shell-out-half-a-million-dollars-for-us-green-card/articleshow/52980799.cms ) in an Indian newspaper that shows that regional centers may still be illegally marketing and selling securities in India.

This is a misleading article filled with inaccuracies but shows that even today, regional centers and unscrupulous individuals are illegally marketing and selling securities in India. 

For starters, the article wrongly states that the Direct Investment route is cumbersome, and not only is the Direct Investment route actually easy, it is also very easy to PROFITABLY create 10 jobs in a Genuine Direct Investment Business.
Second, the minimum investment amount for Direct Investment is $500,000, and not $1 Million.
Third, the writer seems unaware of the fact that regional centers usually engage in massive conflict of interest and commit securities fraud and violate securities laws by ILLEGALLY marketing and selling securities in India without first getting SEBI approval.
Fourth, the write seems unaware of the fact that the annual return on equity from regional centers is about 1% and the chances of capital loss are very high due to the conflict of interest and securities fraud, while annual the return on equity in direct investments typically exceeds 15% and the chances of capital loss are close to none due to the absence of conflict of interest and fraud.
