Will the expiration of the regional center program in the EB-5 visa category cause foreign investments to dry up? Or will it actually create MORE jobs?

I laughed really hard when I read this article by Jeffrey DeBoer (see link because he seems to have his facts WRONG.
Mr. DeBoer falsely claims that "The U.S. will lose an estimated $6.8 billion in foreign investment dollars if the EB-5 regional center program is not reauthorized by September 30. (Based on the 13,663 pending EB-5 petitions as reported by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services at the end of FY’2015 Q2; assumes the minimum $500,000.00 investment for each pending petition.)"

It is undeniable that Regional centers offer measly returns and don't create as many jobs as direct investment jobs. The fact is, more investors will be attracted to the EB-5 visa category, especially when they realize that it is actually very easy to earn solid profits while getting a green card under EB-5 visa. More importantly, the US economy will benefit significantly if the EB-5 visa program only has direct investments, as the investor has to create 10 jobs in order to prove eligibility to stay or alternatively preserve 10 jobs in a failing business.

As a Business Broker and Adviser, it is my job to help my clients create those jobs in a profitable manner in order to help them get their green cards PROFITABLY and SAFELY, because I benefit only if my clients benefit.
EB-5 visa investors need to remember that the ONLY safe way to get a permanent green card in the EB-5 visa category is by investing in Genuine Direct Investment Businesses. At present, there is very little chance of either of the regional center extension bills being written into law due to stiff Congressional and law enforcement opposition.
Some of the important reasons that EB-5 visa investors should ALWAYS choose Genuine Direct Investment Businesses and avoid regional centers are:

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 BBQ 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 see 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.
