A Chinese immigration firm is reportedly using its connection with the real estate company owned by the family of Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, to tell their clients that their U.S. visas will be approved.
According to a report in the New York Times Friday, “Kushner Companies is connected with the firm, Qiaowai, that is scouting Chinese investors to help finance a pair of luxury apartment buildings in Jersey City as part of the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa Program.” Qiaowai has worked with the American company since 2013.
When foreigners invest $500,000 in a U.S. business, they are eligible to receive a visa through the EB-5 program, which has served mostly Chinese investors in the past.
Times reporters saw text messages and emails Qiaowai sent to clients, bragging about its political connections and promising that Trump would make sure the Chinese investors’ visas get approved.
Kushner stepped down as chief executive of Kushner Companies in January, but he’s still the ultimate recipient of its profits. Jared Kushner’s sister, Nicole Meyer, was in the news earlier this month for allegedly attracting investors by playing up her brother’s role in the Trump administration.
