A Perspective on EB-5 and Historical U.S. Immigration

Most Americans – and many others – have a distorted perception of the United States relative to immigration. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries many immigrants realized this soon after they landed. The streets were not paved with gold, and success took just as much hard work here as it did in “the old country.”

The generally popular opinion is that America, the land of the free, is a land that welcomes all immigrants with open arms. A quick review of the history of immigration in America will destroy that myth. Of course America was founded by immigrants, but, in order to form a more perfect union and promote the common welfare, the government, once formed, has had to continually limit immigration. In fact, the historical record indicates that, although the U.S. welcomes immigrants with open arms, it does not do so indiscriminately. Immigrants are welcome, but not all immigrants are.

This is a fundamental reason why the EB-5 investor visa program is so beneficial. Current immigration laws are based on the principle of subjective value. That principle is that a transaction takes place when each side perceives value in it for themselves. A study of all USCIS immigration programs reveals the principle at work.

The EB-5 investor program clearly benefits both the U.S. economy and the immigrant investor. That’s what makes it such a good deal.
