1200 Indians queue up to shell out half-a-million dollars for US green card
MUMBAI: About 1,200 Indians have queued up to shell out half-a-million US dollars each to migrate to the US through a government sponsored 'invest in the US and get a green card scheme', according to immigration consultants. The scramble follows a US government plan to increase the investment such applicants need to make to get an EB-5 visa — from $5,00,000 to $8,00,000 from October 1.

The US Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) approved 111 EB-5 visas for Indian applicants between October 1, 2014 and September 30, 2015 (FY15). The US financial year is from October 1to September 30.

The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program is a "paid invitation" for non-Americans to invest and live the 'American dream'. While America still keeps its doors ajar for highskilled migrants (through student and job visas), Uncle Sam is now looking for well-heeled foreigners who can invest in his country.

I've got no problem with this program as described in the article.

You want in? Right now? Show us how bad, that you'll contribute/invest, and be worth a damn & not another leech.

Fine with me. Take their money, invest it in the economy and create jobs. You can bet with such an investment these people will be working their butts off and not applying for food stamps.

They have something similar here although its free. They call it the Diversity visa lottery and the selected ones get a usa visa to migrate and become citizens... It is massively over subscribed every yr lol.

I dont know the exact numbers but it in the tens of thousands as theirs a few rounds a yr.

The EB-5 visa provides a method of obtaining a green card for foreign nationals who invest money in the United States.[1] To obtain the visa, individuals must invest $1,000,000 (or at least $500,000 in a Targeted Employment Area - high unemployment or rural area), creating or preserving at least 10 jobs for U.S. workers excluding the investor and their immediate family.

These Indians act pretty street smart. They would pool up money from 50-60 people and invest $1m to start a company. Once they get their greencards, they file bankruptcy.

Just so you realise the extent of immigration into the usa...

The diversity visa program covers most countries and are allowed upto 50,000 each in a 5 yr period, so about 10,000 a yr.

[link to www.immihelp.com]

Around 20 countries are ineligible as they each met the 50000 cap in 5 yrs.

crazy numbers!

I have a problem with it because Indians buy a hotel or convenience store and then after 5 tax free years they pass it on to a relative taht they drag here per immigration rules..

50 years if this shit. Fuckin Patels having been riding tax free on Americans income taxes for 50 years.

BTW Income taxes and plus the double up (employee payroll and employer payment) on Social Security Medicare Medicaid are in excess of 80% of all federal revenue.

I agree.

I was thinking about it in contrast to vatos walking across the border & immediately getting on welfare... not as a sign-off on street-shitters in general.

I'm surprised that there is that many people in India who have half a million dollars.
