Representatives from the Kushner family business are reportedly promoting a pathway to U.S. citizenship to Chinese investors willing to shell out $500,000.
Through the EB-5 immigrant investor visa program, wealthy Chinese can “buy” green cards for themselves and their families by parking $500,000 in a job-creating investment. An event which was held Saturday in the ballroom of Beijing’s Ritz-Carlton was advertising the opportunity and was hosted by the Chinese company Qiaowai.
“A woman identified as the sister of senior presidential advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner delivered a message encouraging those in the room to invest in a New Jersey real estate project to get an investor visa,” according to a report in The Hill.
“This project has stable funding, creates sufficient jobs and guarantees the safety of investors’ money,” read one description of the project.
Promotional materials referred to the Kushner family’s “celebrity” status, but made no specific mention of Trump. “Organizers were also reportedly uncomfortable with media attendance at the public event and attempted to block access.”
According to one Chinese investor at the event, Wang Yun, “Even though this is the project of the son-in-law’s family, of course it is still affiliated [to Trump]. We heard that there are rumors that he is the most likely to be impeached president in American history. That’s why I doubt this project.”
