I heard on the news the other night something about Congress wanting a second look at this deal where one can get a green card (EB5), no other questions asked, if one has half a million dollars to pay for it. WHAT?? Who has that kind of money for green cards? Not the people who are picking our lettuce, that is for sure. So...Congress needs to wonder about whether or not unscrupulous persons--terrorist connected, drug dealing, human trafficking types--might take advantage of something like that?? Better late than never, I suppose.
Perhaps I am just overly cynical. I am sure that not everyone with money to invest is unscrupulous.
I also saw the day's update on the trial of that guy who shot the American Sniper, Chris Kyle and his friend. I did not see the movie and do not intend to. I don't know much about the case. But taking a PTSD sufferer to a shooting range for therapy? WHAT?? No one else thinks that was a bad idea from the beginning?
This is why it is not good for me to watch the nightly news.
