The Dangers of EB-5 Consulate Interviews in Juárez

Rate this Entry

by Stephen Parnell


We are receiving reports that violence in Jurez (site of the US Consulate) is a growing concern for our Mexican clients as more wealthy Mexican nationals utilize the EB-5 immigrant investor program to escape the violence in their home country.


A recent headline from Jurez stated:


"........ three men were killed in the Wall Bar, located next to the U.S. Consulate in this city (Jurez)"


Once an approved I-526 Immigrant Investor petition is issued by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service to our Mexican clients, their immigration attorney will apply to the U.S. State Department for an appointment at the U.S. Consulate in Mexico.  Our client must then present themselves, with their entire family, to be interviewed at the U.S. Consulate in Jurez before being issued a visa to enter the United States under the EB-5 visa program.  Herein lies the problem.


A trip to the U.S. Consulate in Jurez could immediately identify the applicant as a wealthy individual, making them a prime target for kidnapping or assassination.


I am making an urgent plea to the U.S. State department and would encourage all EB-5 stakeholders, attorneys, and other interested parties to urge them to examine alternative locations, suitable for "Consular Processing" of EB-5 visa cases.


The current State Department policy endangers ALL EB-5 candidates applying for the EB-5 program in Mexico.  Their current policy increases the possibility that an EB-5 applicant, and/or their family, will be needlessly killed or kidnapped at the final stage of their EB-5 journey, a journey that they embarked upon to escape the violence in Mexico.


It is now time that we do everything in our power to remove this needless threat to our clients and their families.
