Post-Election Report from DC: EB-5 in the 113th Congress

Now that the 2012 elections results are official, IIUSA is looking ahead to the 113th Congress that will take office in January 2013.  The results of the election have reinvigorated efforts to reform the U.S. immigration system from both Democrats and Republicans.  The White House has made it clear that economically oriented immigration reform will be a priority going forward, but only as part of a comprehensive effort (rejecting the House Republican efforts to pass H.R. 6429 during the current “lame duck” session).

When the debate on comprehensive immigration reform begins in the 113th Congress, re-authorization and reform of the EB-5 program will inherently be part of the discussion.  It is important to remember that Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has lead similar efforts in the past – including the reform bill that was included in S. 1986 during the 112th Congress (which never passed either chamber).

IIUSA is looking forward to engaging with Congress on these issues so we can make sure the next re-authorization of the Program is a permanent re-authorization, and that any reforms that are included are designed to enhance the Program’s ability to produce positive policy outcomes (i.e. capital formation, regional economic development, and U.S. job creation).


President Obama signed S3245 last Friday, making EB-5 Regional Center Program re-authorization official!

The three year re-authorization of the EB-5 Regional Center Program is official, as of last Friday 9/28.  With President Obama’s signature, S. 3245 – after passing the Senate with unanimous support and the House by a margin of 412-3 – became Public Law 112-176.

A big THANK YOU from IIUSA to all of our cross-sector partners that stood together for Program re-authorization, leadership/supporters in Congress, association leadership/government affairs team, and – of course – IIUSA members for all the hard work that went into extending this important and innovative U.S. job creation program!


IIUSA remains committed to making the EB-5 Regional Center Program a permanent and successful part of the American economic development toolkit in the years ahead – through industry leadership, education, & advocacy.

Come celebrate the re-authorization of the EB-5 Regional Center Program and join the discussion of “what comes next” at IIUSA’s next event (scheduled in conjunction with theUSCIS Quarterly EB-5 Engagement on 10/16) with 200+ EB-5 industry peers!

House Passes S. 3245, Sends 3 Year Reauthorization of EB-5 Regional Center Program to President Obama for Signature!

At 6:31PM EST today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed S. 3245 (412-3) – which includes a three year re-authorization of the EB-5 Regional Center Program through September 2015.  Having passed by the Senate on August 2, the bill is now on its way to President Obama for signature – likely later this week.  Judiciary Committee Chair Lamar Smith (R-TX), Immigration Subcommittee Ranking Member Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Representative Rick Larsen (D-WA), and Representative Peter Welch (D-VT) all spoke in favor of the EB-5 Regional Center Program re-authorization Tuesday on the floor of the House- with Chairman Smith citing IIUSA statistics in his support of the legislation.

IIUSA issued the following statement earlier this week via press release, welcoming the vote:

“Congress deserves a lot of credit for this one,” said Peter D. Joseph, IIUSA Executive Director. “Utilizing the macroeconomics of globalization, the EB-5 Regional Center Program offers an economic development tool to address weak local capital and labor markets in the U.S. A government program that generates economic growth and thereby tax revenue – with administration costs covered by user fees – is public policy built for the 21st century. Literally tens of thousands of U.S. jobs are at stake in this three year re-authorization.”

FY2012 is already a record breaking year of U.S. job creation and capital formation for the Program, with trends indicating more growth in the years ahead.  Twice as many investor applications have been approved in this fiscal year than all of the year before.


A big THANK YOU from IIUSA to all of our cross-sector partners that stood together for Program re-authorization, leadership/supporters in Congress, association leadership/government affairs team, and – of course – IIUSA members for all the hard work that went into extending this important and innovative U.S. job creation program!

The U.S. House of Representatives reconvenes this week, with a 3 year reauthorization of the EB-5 Regional Center Program on the “suspension of the rules” calendar for tomorrow (Tuesday 9/11/12).  Please contact your representative in the House TODAY (using IIUSA’s 375+ signatory letter to House leadership) and request that they vote “YES” on S. 3245 when it comes up for vote TOMORROW!

The Senate aleady passed S. 3245 (on 8/2/12), meaning after the House acts tomorrow the legislation will head to President Obama’s desk for signature.  IIUSA will keep you updated as we move forward into the final stages of the legislative process.

Thank you for all of the time, effort, and resources you put into EB-5 Regional Center Program advocacy!  We are so close to making it official thanks to our collective work.


IIUSA Delivers 375+ Signatory Letter to House Leadership Urging Immediate Reauthorization of EB-5 Regional Center Program

IIUSA delivered a letter, with 375+ signatories from around the United States, urging the House of Representatives to pass S. 3245 as the Senate did on August 2, 2012 last month.  As the trade association for the EB-5 Regional Center Program (the “Program”), IIUSA is honored to lead such a large, cross-sector coalition in support of the three year Program re-authorization that is included in the legislation!  FY2012 is on pace to being a record breaking year, with even more growth ahead – if Congress follows through!



IIUSA/CDFA host successful EB-5 workshop, sign advocacy/education strategic partnership

The Association to Invest In the USA (IIUSA) recently participated in the 2012 CDFA National Development Finance Summit.  A strong number of Summit attendees – mostly state/local economic development and finance officials – attended the Pre-Summit EB-5 Financing 101 Workshop on Wednesday August 1st at The Fairmont Washington D.C. from 2pm-5pm on Wednesday August 1.  Attendees walked away from the event ready to consider EB-5 capital as a tool for economic development in their communities.

IIUSA Executive Director Peter D. Joseph moderated the Workshop.  Featured speakers included IIUSA Vice President Robert Divine (Head of Immigration Practice at Baker Donelson), IIUSA Member and Burr Forman LLP Partner Jennifer Moseley, and IIUSA Member and EB5 Capital President Angelique Brunner. According to CDFAs promotion of the Workshop, “attendees will learn from the top EB-5 experts in the country as they explain how to access the funds, outline the basic requirements, and showcase how this form of financing has filled the gap in recent projects. Case studies and real project examples will be explored with plenty of time for Q&A.”  IIUSA delivered exactly what was advertised in a condensed, in-depth 3+ hour session.

In addition to the Pre-Summit EB-5 Workshop, IIUSA and the Council of Development Finance Agencies (CDFA) signed a memorandum of understanding that formalized a strategic partnership between the two organizations.  IIUSA is excited to partner with CDFA in EB-5 education and advocacy, with CDFA becoming the preferred development finance education provider to IIUSA members and IIUSA becoming CDFA’s source of EB-5 expertise.  This partnership will extend education opportunities on EB-5 rules, regulations, policies, and best practices to the economic development community across the country, and help the EB-5 Regional Center Program be successful along the way.  FY2012 is on pace for a record year with over 3,000 investor applications approved through Q3.  IIUSA estimates over $2.0BILLION in capital formation and 40,000 U.S. jobs created as a result of FY2012 activities.  This newly minted partnership is positioned to play a dynamic supporting role in continuing these record-breaking trends in the years ahead.

With Congress poised to renew the Program for three years in September, IIUSA is pleased to provide the necessary education and leadership to support the EB-5 industry so the next reauthorization is a permanent one.  Furthermore, IIUSA could not be more thrilled to have CDFA as an official partner in these endeavors of supporting regional economic development throughout the United States in the years ahead.



The Council of Development Finance Agencies (CDFA) is a national association dedicated to the advancement of development finance concerns and interests. CDFA is comprised of the nation’s leading and most knowledgeable members of the development finance community representing public, private and non-profit entities alike. For more information about CDFA, visit www.cdfa.net.

The Association to Invest In the USA (IIUSA) is a 501(c)(6) not-for-profit industry trade association of active EB-5 Regional Centers (“Regional Centers”), attorneys, financial advisers, economists, broker/dealers, consultants, and other EB-5 related service providers. Regional Centers are private corporations and governmental agencies designated by the U.S. government to allow foreign investors to invest capital in their local economies with the goals of preserving and creating U.S. jobs through economic development.



Senate acts to reauthorize EB-5 Regional Center Program for three years

Reporting from Washington, DC

IIUSA is thrilled to be present in DC to support Senate action yesterday to reauthorize the EB-5 Regional Center Program for three years via unanimous consent.  The House is expected to do the same in September after August Congressional recess.


The bipartisan support of this Program should come as no surprise since its explicit purpose is U.S. job creation without adding a dime to the deficit (in fact, it contributes to deficit reduction through tax revenue generation by driving economic activity and adding high net worth individuals to U.S. taxrolls).  IIUSA will continue to advocate for prompt action by the House in September to make sure this Program can continue its growing contribution to the U.S. economy, on track for over $2.0BILLION  and 40,000 U.S. jobs in FY2012.  Congressional action to reauthorize will allow FY2013 to account for even more economic impact.

With today’s jobs report ticking unemployment up to 8.3%, it is gratifying to know that Congress understands the importance of reauthorizing an emergent source of reliable, job-creating capital.


IIUSA leads 350+ strong cross-sector coalition for reauthorization of EB-5 RC Program…now!

IIUSA is honored to lead the undersigned cross-sector coalition of 350+ organizations nationwide that supports immediate action for EB-5 Program reauthorization based on their firsthand experience with the positive economic impact the Program is having on their communities.

EB-5 Regional Economic Development Program On Track for a Record Breaking Year of Capital Formation and U.S. Job Creation in FY2012!


IIUSA Report on EB-5 Visa Usage (2006-March2012)

IIUSA is pleased to publish the following report, using U.S. Department of State data, on EB-5 visas usage and trends dating back to 2006.  As you can see, the trends indicate a record breaking year in capital formation in the EB-5 Regional Center Program in FY2012, all for the purpose of U.S. job creation at no cost to the taxpayer.
