Now it’s all starting to come together. If Donald Trump is elected President and follows through on his proposal for a temporary moratorium on Muslim immigration, Khizr Khan’s business will suffer, and many people who might otherwise have been in the United States will not be. That Trump’s plan is all about trying to stop jihad terrorism is completely unimportant; no one except “bigots” and “Islamophobes” care if more Americans are murdered by jihadis.
“Khan specializes in visa programs accused of selling U.S. citizenship,” by Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner, August 1, 2016:
The father of a Muslim-American soldier killed in Iraq who is caught up in a war of words with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is an immigration lawyer who specializes in a highly controversial program accused of letting immigrants buy their way into the U.S.
Khizr M. Khan’s website notes that he works to help clients with the E-2 and EB-5 programs that let overseas investors buy into U.S. companies and also provides green cards for family members.
It also said that he helps in the purchase of U.S. real estate and businesses. The website lists his ability to practice in New York, though it gives a Washington phone number for the lawyer who lives in Virginia. A man who answered the phone said the website was correct, though he would not identify himself.
“The E-2 and EB-5 are two of the most notoriously abused visa categories that essentially allow wealthy foreigners to buy their way to U.S. residency, and possibly citizenship, with a relatively modest investment,” said Jessica Vaughan, the policy director for the Center for Immigration Studies.
The EB-5 program has been caught up in multiple scandals and critics are pressing Congress to kill it.
“The EB-5 is literally a ‘citizenship for sale’ program in which a visa for a whole family can be bought for as little $500,000,” Vaughan told Secrets. “It is literally a ‘citizenship for sale’ program, and it’s an amazing deal. Compared to other countries, America is the Walmart of investor visa programs,” she added.
One criticism is that it allows an immigrant to invest $500,000 in an approved type of business and in return get a set of green cards for the investor, the investor’s spouse, and all their under 21-years-of-age children.
Other documented problems include foreigners getting fleeced in fraudulent schemes to help them invest in the U.S.
There is no indication that Khan’s clients have been caught up in the controversies…
