The EB-5 program has long provided a path to U.S. Lawful Permanent Residence to immigrant investors willing to invest lawfully obtained capital in a qualifying commercial enterprise in the U.S. The resulting impact is to create 10 qualified full-time jobs for U.S. workers from each EB-5 investor. Buchanan's EB-5 experts and FAU Economics Professor and President of Barnhart Economic Services, Scott Barnhart, presented an interactive discussion on alternatives to the EB-5 program, proposed legislative changes to EB-5 and predictions of future immigration issues

  • Christine Alden – Shareholder, Immigration | Buchanan
  • Scott Barnhart, PhD – FAU Economics Professor and President | Barnhart Economic Services
  • Mike Strazzella – Practice Group Leader, Federal Government Relations | Buchanan

Following the event, Christine and Mike outlined the 10 most pressing questions that anyone who is a part of the EB-5 world needs to be thinking about.
