US Visas for Sale

Trump's anti-immigration message does not apply to the wealthy.

White House senior adviser and Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner's family business  encouraged wealthy Chinese citizens to “invest $500,000" in their real estate empire and then be allowed to immigrate to the United States.

Kushner’s sister, Nicole Meyer, encouraged those in the ballroom to invest in her family's New Jersey real estate project and get an investor visa in return. 

The visa, known as the EB-5 immigrant investor visa program, gives foreign investors the opportunity to invest in projects in the U.S and then lets them apply to immigrate to the U.S. The program has been used by both the Trump and Kushner family businesses. The investor visa program is  extremely popular among very rich Chinese eager to get their families — and their wealth — out of China.

The event was hosted by the Qiaowai Group, the leading brand of China's immigration industry, which is working to get funding for Kushner 1, a family project in New Jersey which includes two towers, 1,476 luxury apartments and a medical center for pets. 

Rich Chinese, or rich anybodies, don't need anybody's permission to immigrate. The USA was designed of the rich, by the rich and for the rich.
