How will the new public charge rule of USCIS, which goes into effect Dec. 23, impact my EB-5 application?

My family is loaning me the EB-5 investment because I am not a highly educated man and I do not make a lot of money.

    The question is whether you would likely become unable to support yourself in the United States and become dependent upon public grants. If you can show no means of supporting yourself, you likely will be denied as a public charge. You need to be healthy and willing to work. You do not need to be highly educated, but with no education you might find it difficult to find employment.

    The new regulations are very reasonable and I am not worried about EB-5 with most of our clients. If you have education and skills then you are likely going to be okay.

    It should not affect you.
