The EB-5 Visa Program was created by Congress in 1990, with a goal to boost the U.S. economy through capital investments and job creation by foreign investors. Investors can now qualify for EB-5 visas if they invest through regional centers designated by USCIS.
"The EB-5 process is not as straight-forward as it sounds. There are many details one should be aware of before deciding to invest in a venture. When investing in the EB-5 program, choosing to go through accredited regional centers will offer you more security and overall allow you to have a more successful experience. "
"The stigma towards birth tourism exists can be seen in the term “anchor” or “jackpot” babies. Babies born to illegal alien mothers in the U.S. are also sometimes referred to in this way due to the perception that these babies anchor the illegal alien mother and their extended family into permanent U.S. residency."
The rise of “Birth Tourism,” or travel to another country for the purpose of giving birth in that country is on the rise. As the United States is one of the few industrialized nations that follows “Birthright Citizenship,” it is a popular destination for many pregnant women. While there is a stereotype that many (alien) women enter the U.S. to have children because they are seeking the expedite their immigration process, people enter the United States for many other reasons such as access to a better quality health care system or as a way to circumvent China’s one-child policy.
