    -----------------IMMIGRATION DAILY FROM ILW.COM------------------

    1. Comment: EB5 For Experts -

    ILW.COM is pleased to present "EB5 For Experts" a 3-part

    telephone seminar series with Michael Gibson, Robert C. Divine,

    Robert Gaffney and John Patrick Pratt (Other Speakers to be

    Announced). The curriculum is as follows:

    FIRST Phone Session on December 30: Due Diligence & Care

    Guidance in helping clients select an appropriate investment

    With an onslaught of EB-5 Regional Center applications filed

    recently and the expected number of Centers expected to top 200

    in the near future, how can immigration attorneys expect to

    counsel their client on which investment to select and what

    should they do to protect themselves in the event that the

    project fails to achieve the removal of the I-829 or fails to

    return the capital invested?

    ++The role of the immigration attorney and care for client

    ++Due Diligence lists, how relevant are they?

    ++What factors should be considered

    ++Scope of representation

    ++Liability, disclaimers and waivers

    ++The role of the immigration attorney as advisor, professional

    insurance

    ++The roles of other professionals to assist the investor client

    SECOND Phone Session on January 13: Securities law: Avoiding

    Litigation and Rescission

    With so many EB-5 Regional Centers marketing to a relatively few,

    the pressure is on to deliver investor clients and the tactics

    and techniques employed by some of the Center's, their agents and

    "finders", both in the U.S. and overseas may cause increased

    scrutiny by the Securities & Exchange Commission and attorneys

    who specialize on malpractice and litigation on behalf of their

    investor clients. How can EB-5 practitioners and Regional

    Centers who have offerings in the market stay safe and avoid

    potential litigation and rescission?

    ++Reg. D & Reg. S offerings (definition of exemption)

    ++Solicitation and 502(c) rule

    ++Internet advertising: Lamp & IPO.net

    ++Seminars: overseas and domestic, rules and practices

    ++Compensation and fees: definition of Agents & Finders

    ++Marketing material v. operating documents

    ++Project failure and investor litigation

    THIRD Phone Session on February 3: Valuation & Risk

    What factors improve the chance of success in an EB-5 investment,

    the roles of capital, debt and equity, cash flow and what other

    factors are critical to making an informed decision in assessing

    the strength and weakness of the offering.

    ++Why proper valuation of risk is important

    ++Factors used in evaluating risk, research, due diligence

    ++The importance of capital

    ++The importance of the timeline in project completion

    ++Cash flow

    ++Equity v. Debt

    ++The role of management, competition & market

    ++The decision making process

    ++Comparisons of dis-similar projects

    ++Risk ratings and standards in risk valuations

  5. Dec 27 - Cold Shoulder Hot Air

    -----------------IMMIGRATION DAILY FROM ILW.COM------------------

    December 27, 2010

    http://www.ilw.com/immigrationdaily/digest/2010,1227.shtm

    ITEMS

    1. Comment: Cold Shoulder Hot Air - In an interview with

    Politico,

    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1210/46774.html

    Rep. Lamar Smith, incoming Chairman of the Judiciary Committee

    laid out a non-extreme agenda on immigration, scheduling the

    first two committee hearings on E-Verify rather than on the 14th

    amendment. To the extent that the article is correct in that Mr.

    Smith is restraining Mr. King, incoming Chairman of the

    Immigration Subcommittee (within the Judiciary Committee), from

    pursuing a perilous course of action in discussing the 14th

    amendment, to that extent we commend Mr. Smith for his prudence.

    The article goes on to discuss a possible Republican revival of

    DREAM, coupled with mandatory E-Verify and possibly elimination

    of the Family-based 4th preference in the 112th Congress. We

    believe Republicans would certainly be wise to revive DREAM, even

    should it be on Republican terms. It would certainly put Mr.

    Obama in an untenable position since he is now following a

    strictly enforcement-first strategy. The Democratic

    administration's strategy is on the one hand to deport a record-

    breaking number of immigrants and doing absolutely nothing to

    give such immigration benefits as are completely and exclusively

    within the Executive Branch power (such as a TPS-like status for

    everyone), while on the other hand fobbing off immigrants and

    their advocates with empty words. We call this the "cold shoulder

    - hot air" strategy. Mr. Smith and his colleagues in the senior

    Republican leadership in the House are very smart politicians

    with a long history of successfully foisting their immigration

    positions onto Democrats - the White House may find them running

    circles around the Democrats. We understand that it is the

    President's intention to devote a good amount of attention in his

    State of the Union address to immigration. Mr. Obama would be

    much better advised to use his executive discretion to offer

    concrete immigration benefits to the DREAMers instead, he look no

    farther than the array of options that Cyrus Mehta and Gary

    Endelman lay out for him.

    9. Focus: EB5 For Experts

    ILW.COM is pleased to present "EB5 For Experts" a 3-part

    telephone seminar series with Michael Gibson, Robert C. Divine,

    Robert Gaffney and John Patrick Pratt (Other Speakers to be

    Announced). The curriculum is as follows:

    FIRST Phone Session on December 30: Due Diligence & Care

    Guidance in helping clients select an appropriate investment

    With an onslaught of EB-5 Regional Center applications filed

    recently and the expected number of Centers expected to top 200

    in the near future, how can immigration attorneys expect to

    counsel their client on which investment to select and what

    should they do to protect themselves in the event that the

    project fails to achieve the removal of the I-829 or fails to

    return the capital invested?

    ++The role of the immigration attorney and care for client

    ++Due Diligence lists, how relevant are they?

    ++What factors should be considered

    ++Scope of representation

    ++Liability, disclaimers and waivers

    ++The role of the immigration attorney as advisor, professional

    insurance

    ++The roles of other professionals to assist the investor client

    SECOND Phone Session on January 13: Securities law: Avoiding

    Litigation and Rescission

    With so many EB-5 Regional Centers marketing to a relatively few,

    the pressure is on to deliver investor clients and the tactics

    and techniques employed by some of the Center's, their agents and

    "finders", both in the U.S. and overseas may cause increased

    scrutiny by the Securities & Exchange Commission and attorneys

    who specialize on malpractice and litigation on behalf of their

    investor clients. How can EB-5 practitioners and Regional

    Centers who have offerings in the market stay safe and avoid

    potential litigation and rescission?

    ++Reg. D & Reg. S offerings (definition of exemption)

    ++Solicitation and 502(c) rule

    ++Internet advertising: Lamp & IPO.net

    ++Seminars: overseas and domestic, rules and practices

    ++Compensation and fees: definition of Agents & Finders

    ++Marketing material v. operating documents

    ++Project failure and investor litigation

    THIRD Phone Session on February 3: Valuation & Risk

    What factors improve the chance of success in an EB-5 investment,

    the roles of capital, debt and equity, cash flow and what other

    factors are critical to making an informed decision in assessing

    the strength and weakness of the offering.

    ++Why proper valuation of risk is important

    ++Factors used in evaluating risk, research, due diligence

    ++The importance of capital

    ++The importance of the timeline in project completion

    ++Cash flow

    ++Equity v. Debt

    ++The role of management, competition & market

    ++The decision making process

    ++Comparisons of dis-similar projects

    ++Risk ratings and standards in risk valuations
