Dear Editor:
In response to Sebastian's letter, there is a legal way to buy a green card. Known as the Immigrant Investor Program (EB-5 category), all one has to do is invest $1,000,000 in a business that creates at least 10 U.S. jobs. In areas of high unemployment, $500,000 will do the trick. However, since the USCIS has a poor grasp of business basics and entrepreneurial realities, obtaining a green card through the EB-5 category is far more difficult than it should be. While Sebastian's auction-for-rights to work idea makes sense within the confines of pure capitalist theory, the ability of the USCIS to administer such a prospective program is questionable at best. The restrictive and counterintuitive approach that USCIS has taken toward the EB-5 category has set a disturbing precedent. After all, nothing obligates immigrant investors to bring their investment capital to the US in order to create jobs for US workers. The habitual failure of the USCIS to understand this simple fact harms all Americans.
