Kushner’s Sister Pushing U.S. Investor Visas to the Chinese
Ms Nicole Kushner Meyer, the sister of President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Mr Jared Kushner, is in Beijing, peddling the U.S. EB-1 investor visa, as this report in The Washington Post points out.
She is there pushing a New Jersey luxury apartment complex owned by the family with the carrot, “Invest $500,000 and immigrate to the United States.”
Most countries welcome affluent immigrants who are ready to invest on projects aimed at job creation.
It is currently in the range of $500,000 to $1 million for American residency, depending on the scope of the investment, through the EB-1 visa. But the amount is expected to go up soon.
With daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Kushner already holding plum advisory positions in the White House, Nicole is another member of the President’s family hitting the limelight selling what wealthy Chinese consider as the “Golden Visa”.
Journalists Told to Leave
Reporters were at the event in Beijing but midway through the organisers appeared to have got nervous and ejected them from the venue. A reporter from The Washington Post was among journalists asked to leave.
Questions on nepotism and ethics have been raised since Mr Trump started dishing out power positions to members of his family. But criticism and protests have hardly rankled him. The country appears to have become another property of Trump’s family, which now extends to even Jared Kushner’s Sister. And who knows who else? Is the U.S. on sale?
