BEIJING: Kushner Family Pitches Visas To The Wealthy In Return For $500K Investment In Their Business

The Washington Post reports:

The Kushner family came to the United States as refugees, worked hard and made it big — and if you invest in Kushner properties, so can you. That was the message delivered Saturday by White House senior adviser Jared Kushner’s sister to a ballroom full of wealthy Chinese investors, renewing questions about the Kushner family’s business ties to China.

Over several hours of slide shows and presentations, representatives from the Kushner family business urged Chinese citizens gathered at the Ritz-Carlton hotel to consider investing hundreds of thousands of dollars in a New Jersey real estate project to secure what’s known as an investor visa.

The EB-5 immigrant investor visa program, which allows foreign investors to invest in U.S. projects that create jobs and then apply to immigrate, has been used by both the Trump and Kushner family businesses.

According to the above-linked article, the Kushners are holding out the threat that Trump will change the EB-5 program in order to pressure investors to act immediately. The tagline on the event’s brochure: “Invest $500,000 and immigrate to the United States.”
