Senate to take up controversial EB-5 visa program for foreign investors

On the last Thursday in November 1990, President George H.W. Bush walked into a White House ceremony, delivered  perfunctory remarks  to a smattering of dignitaries and then, surrounded by lawmakers, signed the most comprehensive federal immigration reform in six decades.

With an increase to the number of legal immigrants allowed in the United States, the policy was a big bipartisan accomplishment for the Republican, supported by both parties in Congress and  sponsored  by no less a liberal Democrat than Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy.

A quarter century later, the reform is still bringing Democrats and Republicans together on Capitol Hill. But it's not for the reasons they'd hoped.

A particular program created by the law is the subject of growing concern on both sides of the political aisle — the EB-5 initiative giving wealthy foreigners visas in exchange for $500,000 investments in American businesses.

This Employment-Based Fifth Preference system was intended to boost the economies of underdeveloped rural enclaves and impoverished urban areas, but mounting evidence suggests it's susceptible to misuse.

Recap: Candidates Speak Out Before Next Tuesday's Special Election

A week from today, voters on the Lower East Side and throughout the 65th Assembly District will be asked to choose Sheldon Silver’s replacement in Albany. A special election is scheduled for Tuesday, April 19. The Lo-Down moderated two public forums, offering voters a chance to hear from the four candidates on the ballot. We’ve posted the audio from those forums ( here and here ), but in the event you don’t have a spare three-and-a-half hours to listen, here’s a recap.

The most recent event was held this past Wednesday evening. It was hosted by Asian Americans for Equality, Educational Alliance and the Chinese American Voters Association. I moderated with questions being asked by reporters from four Chinese language news organizations (World Journal, China Press, Sing Tao Daily and SinoVision).

The candidates taking part included Lester Chang (R), Alice Cancel (D), Yuh-Line Niou (Working Families Party) and Dennis Levy (Green Party). Cancel departed after about 45 minutes to attend a tenant meeting elsewhere in the neighborhood.

What's to blame for the increase in urban violence during the summertime?

Is it overcrowding? Heat and humidity? Urban stress? Job stress? Financial stress? Spiritual voids? Lack of community resources and/or activities? Boredom (too much time and nothing to do)? Dysfunctional families? Disintegrating moral values?

I think all of the options you listed have a part in the increased urban violence during the summertime. The main ones however would have to be Lack of community resources and/or activities which creates Boredom (too much time and nothing to do).
