From The Washington Times:
The EB-5 program was used by â€œa network involved in a series of international assassinations and terrorism operationsâ€ that also was â€œprocuring a variety of goods for Iranian entities,â€ states an unsigned memo from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement made public Thursday. The memo was written in response to questions asked by Janet A. Napolitano as homeland security secretary.
The memo called the EB-5 program a weak point in the nationâ€™s immigration security because visa holders can become green card holders and eventually citizens â€” without going through the background checks that most prospective immigrants face. The program is designed to attract foreigners who pledge to invest in the U.S. economy.
