SENATORS INTRODUCE MODIFIED START UP VISA

Rate this Entry

Senators John Kerry (D-MA), Richard Lugar (R-IN) and Mark Udall (D-CO) have reintroduced the start up visa bill now that the new Congress is in session. The bill would grant two-year visas to entrepreneurs if they secure $100,000 from qualified investors. After two years, the start up must have at least five employees and $500,000 invested.


Democrats and Republicans have talked endlessly that the focus in Washington should be on job creation, but for the most part little has been done. The start up visa is a way to directly create jobs and costs the taxpayers nothing.

    The problem is racists in the GOP such as Rand Paul, Jim Demint, Jeff Sessions and David Vitter know where the money comes from...Asia and just like many of the racist white Aussies, Brits and New Zealanders (about half of the white population in those countries) they want the Asian money but they dont want Asians living next to white people in the US! That is why there is no movement from the normally business friendly GOP regarding the investor visa...and Lugar will be attacked by the racist teabaggers for introducing this bill!

    But would those data bases would be the same as e-verify and may produce the same faulty results? Out of status people would not be logging in...

    There is no point introducing bills if a single one is not taken for a vote. It is just a waste of time; and I believe skilled immigrants waiting in line have realized it; they have left the line!!!

    Only 10% of legislation introduced ever pass the Senate and House...and this one likely will not pass!

    Should say it will not pass as long as the Asians are the ones with the money...and as the recent UCLA rant suggests, I am pretty certain that there are many Americans who love Asian money but at the minimum dont want Asians around.

    Coming pretty soon...

    Due to National Security concerns, Congress' inability to pass any sort of immigration reform and President's extraordinary powers during war times (adding the new military action against Libya), Barack Obama may indeed accelerate his decision to enact an Executive Order that will give some sort of legal protection to millions of undocumented aliens living in the United States based on certain prerequisites or requirements - these people must be registered in DHS database and many of them will have to enroll in the Selective Service System (ages 18-45).

    Citizenship Papers please...?

    He is illegally in this country. Will ICE, FAIR and CIS have him deported to Canada or let him be as he is a war veteran and most important, he is white, despite the fact that he is illegally in this country?

    George, of course he is NOT illegally in the country, don't be dramatic. At the very least, he is eligible for automatic PR status as residents since 1972. Probably, he is presumed LPR under some other (earlier than our time) law.

    Here is some challenge, though. If he applies for naturalization, which is an admission of him not being a citizen (which is of itself questionable - his parent were born in the US), then he may be subject to a permanent admissibility bar since he claimed, and probably multiple times, that he is a US citizen, probably has a voting record, etc. There is no waiver for this inadmissibility category, which may mean that if actually applies for citizenship, he will have to be deported.

    Wanna bet $100 that FAIR and CIS are white skin worshipping pagans? This will be the test! Will they fight to deport him or hide their bigotry behind "he is too old!" After all, FAIR never lifted a finger when former Nazis were fighting deportation!
