Kushner Trades in Visas

Sep 4, 2017

Kushner Companies, the business owned by the family of Trump’s son-in-law Jared, is being investigated for trading visas for investments. Wealthy Chinese investors were told in May that up to 300 people who invested at least 500,000 dollars would receive a green card under the federal EB-5 program.

Kushner himself headed the company until this year, when he stepped down before joining the Trump White House team. His sister now runs the company; and she made liberal use of images of Jared AND his father-in-law Donald Trump to lure investors to the company.

The company issued statements saying it had “fully complied with the rules and regulations” of the EB-5 program. And they might be right! Why would they need to break the law when the law is on their side?
