This morning’s Boston Globe (newspaper) carries a front page article about a little known U. S. immigration program where you can literally and legally buy your way into immigration status (the Green Card). http://www.boston.com/news/local/vermont/articles/2011/10/25/jobs_for_green_cards_a_controversial_program_expands/?p1=News_links  It works like this. If you invest US$1 million anywhere in the US or US$500,000 in depressed and remote area of the US, you are eligible to receive immigrant status immediately. Since the program is undersubscribed, there is no waiting line (versus the other legal immigration routes that have waiting line stretching into years). Furthermore, when you are admitted as immigrant, your entire immediate family receive the green card also.

I wonder how well known this is in China with the large number of rich Chinese business person currently.

  

Note added 3/23/2015 According to a news story in China Daily USA edition 1/23-25/2015, from its beginning in 2004 with 16 Chinese applicants, the program has in 2014 nearly 7000 Chinese applicant taking up 70% of the quota allowed.
