The program allows foreign investors a path to citizenship in exchange for investments of at least $500,000 in U.S. development projects

“The Kushner family is reportedly hoping to lure wealthy Chinese investors to the United States with the promise of American visas if they invest $500,000 in their property develop projects.

Nicole Kushner Meyer, the sister to White House adviser Jared Kushner, spoke at an event on Saturday in Beijing where she was marketing a property owned by their family in New Jersey.

She made a pitch to attract $150million in financing for the housing development known as One Journal Square, a $976.4 million project that’s currently underway, to the more than 100 Chinese investors who attended the event at the Ritz-Carlton, CNN reported.

The money would be provided though EB-5, a government program that provides foreign investors a path to citizenship in exchange for investments of at least $500,000 in U.S. development projects, according to The New York Times.

The company has stated about 15 per cent of the nearly $1billion project will be funded through the EB-5 program.

The tagline on a brochure for the event on Saturday reads: ‘Invest $500,000 and immigrate to the United States.’

The potential investors were advised to invest as soon as possible in case visa rules are changed under President Donald Trump’s administration.

‘Invest early, and you will invest under the old rules,’ one speaker said.

Trump has taken a strong anti-immigration stance and has promised to severely tighten the use of work visas. In addition, the EB-5 program has faced criticism by members of Congress on both sides of the aisle.

Some lawmakers claim the program sells citizenship to high-income foreigners. “

“Not at this time,” she responded.

“Well, that’s a pretty precise answer,” Blitzer said.

On Tuesday, Feinstein and her committee colleagues were briefed at CIA headquarters about Russia’s meddling in the presidential campaign.

Earlier on Wednesday, Feinstein attended a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing where FBI Director James Comey was pressed about the investigation. He provided few updates about the Trump-Russia probe.”
