IIUSA Executive Director Aaron Grau spoke with us: “The fact that these senators have raised the issue of EB-5 as a hindrance to job creation is the perfect opportunity and obligates organizations like IIUSA to speak up and say, no it’s not a hindrance; it’s the only visa that requires applicants by statute to actually create jobs.” Securities attorney Ronnie Fieldstone said, “I don’t see how President Trump would practically support the position in that letter when it would contradict his own position and the country’s position of needing job creation. It’s illogical.”
