Get EB5 Green Card by investing in Dallas

Dallas Regional Center stir a buzz about getting green card by investing money in city of Dallas project. This is so called EB5 category immigration. If the investment generate at least 10 jobs for the city, in return, you and your family (for spouse and under age children only) get green cards. It might make sense for some wealthy foreigners. Their children get American education and it might save some money in the long run as being an international students always end up paying more. So if investors has four or five kids...good for them. Minimum of U.S. 500k might be cheaper than send all four kids as international students for four or six years including masters degree.

Business Week new article about H1B visa

Business Week once in a while will have short article about H1B visa. please read here for the most recent one. Some people usually argue H1B visa are cheap labor in IT. That is not true. Not all H1B visa holders are in IT field and they should not be cheap. At least there need to meet Department of Labor salary minimum. They are set by DOL, so there should not be a cheap labor. Even someone think they are cheap, they should already meet the salary requirement.

Again, immigrants are one of the key factors America is not aging as most of the European countries.

USCIS name check backlog eliminated

Name check is one of the important step for USCIS and FBI to determine if you are a good standing person who did not conduct any criminal offensive that might potentially harm USA. Name check used to take for a while and if you are in bad luck, such as the same name as most wanted, it will take a while and there is some backlog. No more. According to the USCIS press release in June, they are eliminating these backlog thanks to updated computerization and more staffing.

Buy American, Hire American

It is impossible to buy all American and Hire all American. just read Thomas Friedman's The World is Flat. (and yes, Mr. Friedman was born in USA) If do so, it might actually hurt America. In this AP article "Bank sought foreign workers" it once again, like some other articles accuse H1B worker got paid less than American. I really do not think so. I do not believe some bank will really pay their foreign born VP less than U.S. born VP. VPs are not cheap.
