So I was surprised to learn today that some of the wonderful elected officials in our country actually think it is a good idea to trade resident status in our country for a small investment. It seems as though Sens. Charles Schumer (D., N.Y.) and Mike Lee (R., Utah), proposed a piece of legislation that would allow foreigners to earn a resident visa for investing $500,000 in American real estate. The broad strokes can be viewed in the Wall Street Journal article. Read the article just so you know what the circus on Capitol Hill is up to. If you care for OUR country even a little bit, keep an eye on these clowns before they are able to sell any of it. If for some reason this legislation does go somewhere make sure to write, call, email, or send smoke signals to your elected representatives and tell them they will be fired if they support such lunacy. Do our lawmakers not realize that the people that we do not want in America more than anything are going to be the ones that can afford to spend half a million dollars to infiltrate the U.S.? I just wish that I was surprised.
