EB-5 Immigration News – Will The Program Be Resuscitated?

According to this article on Forbes, by Andy J. Semotiuk, Contributor

“The most recent news is that the EB-5 Regional Center program is about to sunset, that is, to expire on June 30th, 2021. The reason is because it was decoupled from automatic renewals in the Congressional budgetary process following years of being renewed in that way. Meanwhile, as a result of a recent Behring court ruling, the minimum EB5 regional center program investment requirement has returned to $ 500,000 from a high of $ 900,000. The U.S Federal District Court held the regulation raising the amount was improperly adopted.

The EB-5 Reform and Integrity Act of 2021

Long before these developments occurred, U.S. Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Patrick Leahy (D-VT) introduced the EB-5 Reform and Integrity Act of 2021 to reauthorize the EB-5 regional center program in Congress. The Act, and a similar bill in the House, called for revisions to the EB-5 Regional Center Program to better protect investors, reduce corrupt practices in how it was being run and extend the life of the program for five years. For months now members of the EB-5 community, including for example Invest in the USA (IIUSA) and the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), have been organizing support for the legislation to be adopted before the June 30th, 2021 deadline.”

“WASHINGTON (AP) — Attorneys are asking the Biden administration to release from immigration custody a Chinese democracy advocate who could be deported to his homeland to face what they say are false charges — despite the lack of an extradition treaty between the United States and China.

Human rights advocates say this is one of a handful of cases in which China has used the Interpol “red notice” system to try to force the return of fugitives from the United States. Under this system, a member country of the international police consortium can ask other countries to arrest and return fugitives living abroad. It’s not clear how often, if ever, this tactic has resulted in the U.S. turning over detainees to Chinese authorities.”

According to this article on Fox 43, by Claire Bermudez

“The Biden administration is reportedly moving forward with a plan to shift where asylum cases are handled, in an effort to tackle a sizeable backlog in applications.

The plan, as NPR reports, would try to speed up processing by allowing officials at the Department of Homeland Security to rule on claims without sending them to immigration court, where it would be ultimately up to immigration judges.”

According to this article on BuzzFeed News, by Hamed Aleaziz

“Thirty-two unaccompanied immigrant children who were deported to Guatemala despite a judge’s order have yet to be brought back to the US to apply for asylum, six months after the government admitted it was in the wrong. Now, immigration advocates are ramping up pressure on the Biden administration to speed up the process.

“It has been months since these children were expelled in violation of a court order and we need answers immediately,” said Lee Gelernt, an attorney with the ACLU who led the lawsuit challenging the Trump-era policy. “The children need to be given a chance to speak to us as counsel and the option to return to the US if they choose.””
