FIRST Phone Session on April 29: EB-5 Indirect Jobs? Induced Jobs? Ask the Economist

Most immigration lawyers will never need to understand economic forecasting to file visa petition. But the EB5 program changes all that. In fact, nearly 90% of all EB-5 cases rely on economic modeling to prove job creation testing to seek conditional residency and two years later to seek removal of conditions. A panel of economists will discuss basic concepts that every immigration lawyer working in the EB-5 visa program should know including:

* What are direct/indirect/induced jobs?
* Overview of USCIS approved models including RIMS II and IMPLAN
* Reality check on job creation claims by Regional Centers
* Coordinating business plan, econometric report, and reality during I-526 and I-829 petitions
* Defining TEAs to claim $500,000 reduced investment threshold
* Questions and Answers

Speakers: Michael Gibson, David Morris, John Barrett, Scott Barnhart, Melissa Krinzman, Jason Oleet
