With the qualification that the EB-5 program needs a major overhaul. USCIS is incapable of administering an investment program, it should be moved to the SEC. Making a defective program permanent is a dubious achievement. If the many incompetent reviewers are removed and nonsensical regulations fixed so that the program could be run with a true business orientation, it would be tremendous for investment, innovation and US job creation. The only problem is that neither of those current, major problems (incompetence and irrational regulatory scheme) are solved by extending the program "as is."
