#5 State Dept taking notes

EB-5 and E-2 visas. US State is cheaper to bribe. Used to as little as $500,000. Whole clans have moved starting with them. Terry McAuliffe (D-Psychopath) is notorious for his EB-5 investor schemes.

#7 This program has largely been a failure. The idea is to bring in foreign investment, so there are a lot of rules around how much money you spend, how many jobs you create, etc. Other countries' version of the program just allows you to buy the visa, which people prefer. As a result, the annual allotment of these visas has never been used up.

#8 ^ Yep. With the Swiss it's just cash on the barrel head. So why go anywhere else if you can afford it?

I worked a huge EB-5/E-2 case in LA a few years ago. What a racket. Soooo much fraud. It was a license to print money.
