You read it here first. Alejandro Mayorkas and Harry Reid are in trouble as the DHS prepares to kick regional centers out of the EB-5 visa program.

I just read on ABC News (see link that DHS has officially confirmed what I'd already mentioned 5 weeks ago in my blog post (see ) that Mayorkas is being investigated for aiding and abetting fraudulent procurement of EB-5 visas at the behest of Gov. Terry McAuliffe of VA, Senator Harry Reid of NV and Tony Rodham, to name just a few instances. It looks like Sammy Boy (aka Sam Nazarian) is going to be quite unhappy in the days to come and so will Peter Joseph.

The bottom line is, investigators and analysts from SEC, FBI, USCIS - FDNS, ICE-HSI, IRS-CID and Dept. of State are shocked at the sheer magnitude of funds being laundered out of China, Russia and other countries, due to which they are collectively pushing for kicking regional centers out of the EB-5 visa program. Jared Polis introduced a bill to renew the regional center program, but it is guaranteed to fail as not only is the bill opposed by about 140,000 investigators and their unions, it is also opposed by several powerful politicians and the results of the GAO audit due this summer are only bound to solidify the opposition to the renewal. 

As a matter of fact, the regional center extension has a 2% chance of going through (see link at, and in real terms has no chance of being passed due to the fact that government agencies, law enforcement unions, powerful politicians and thousands of investigators are up in arms against regional centers.

EB-5 visa investors need to remember that the ONLY safe way to get approved is through Genuine Direct Investment Businesses.

Here are some of the critical reasons that EB-5 visa investors should ALWAYS choose Genuine Direct Investment Businesses and avoid regional centers:
  1. In a Genuine Direct Investment Business, it is quite unusual to encounter fraud or conflict of interest. This alone is THE biggest reason why EB-5 visa investors usually experience capital loss if they opt for regional centers or unsafe Direct Investments (such as Voodoo or Marcos Pizza), while those who opt for Genuine Direct Investment Businesses usually NEVER experience capital loss. 
  2. EB-5 visa investors who choose Genuine Direct Investment Businesses usually earn annual ROI of 15% to 40%, while those who select regional centers usually earn 0-2% annual ROI. 
  3. Genuine Direct Investment Businesses offer easy exit strategies to EB-5 visa investors while those who invest in regional centers experience TERRIBLE exit strategies. 
  4. Regional Centers usually commit securities fraud and securities law violations while this is usually unheard of in Genuine Direct Investment Businesses. 
  5. EB-5 visa investors usually get capital gains if they invest in a Genuine Direct Investment Business and almost NEVER get capital gains if they invest in a regional center. 
  6. EB-5 visa investors in Genuine Direct Investment Businesses usually see faster processing and approval of their petitions, while it takes much longer for EB-5 visa investors to get their immigrant visa through regional centers.  
  7. EB-5 visa investors in Genuine Direct Investment Businesses have a higher chance of getting their permanent green card, while those who opt for regional centers have a lower chance of getting their green card.
