The Kushner family came to the United States as refugees, worked hard and made it big – and if you invest in Kushner properties, so can you.
That was the message delivered Saturday by White House senior adviser Jared Kushner’s sister to a ballroom full of wealthy Chinese investors, renewing questions about the Kushner family’s business ties to China.
Over several hours of slide shows and presentations, representatives from the Kushner family business urged Chinese citizens gathered at the Ritz-Carlton hotel to consider investing hundreds of thousands of dollars in a New Jersey real estate project to secure what’s known as an investor visa.
The EB-5 immigrant investor visa program, which allows foreign investors to invest in US projects that create jobs and then apply to immigrate, has been used by both the Trump and Kushner family businesses.
But President Donald Trump’s vow to crack down on immigration, as well as criticism from members of Congress, has led to questions about the future of a program known here as the ” golden visa.”
The EB-5 has been extremely popular among rich Chinese who are eager to get their families – and their wealth – out of the country, though the fact that some move their money out illegally has made the program unpopular with the Chinese government, too.
