One could blame the perils of the EB-5 Program on the captive, law enforcement bureaucracy that has throttled it thus far. Yes, without a doubt, to a certainty, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and its legacy agencies mismanaged the EB-5 Program since 1990, when Congress passed the law creating the Program. And yes, there are enormous opportunities to create jobs NOW -- TODAY -- without the expenditure of a single taxpayer dollar. But that will not happen.
It will not happen absent action from a paralyzed Congress, which now throttles the EB-5 Program because it will not set it free.
And, of course, action in Congress is a nonsequitur. It is not going to happen. Thousands and thousands of good jobs for Americans will not be created because Congress is paralyzed and cannot act because of lack of bipartisanship to create jobs for Americans. Foreign investment dollars will not flow into the United States under the EB-5 Program because Congress is paralyzed and cannot act.
Same old, same old.
Is there any wonder why I am discouraged?
