Miller Mayer immigration attorney Steve Yale-Loehr was quoted by the Cornell Daily Sun in “Tompkins County Deputy Called ICE to Report Mexican Man in U.S. Illegally, Drawing Sheriff’s Ire.”
Mr. Yale-Loehr said, “I agree that it is a close call, but the county resolution explicitly states that nothing in the resolution bars a sheriff’s officer from sending a statement of a person’s immigration status to federal immigration authorities.”
Miller Mayer’s immigration attorney Nicolai Hinrichsen was quoted in the Manila Standard in “The Fastest Way to American Green Card.”
“There are 10 thousand EB-5 visas and no country can take more than 7 percent of those visas,” Nicolai Hinrichsen, senior attorney with the Miller Mayer LLP and managing partner of its Asia EB-5 practice, said during a presentation.“China is the driver for EB-5 program due to its overwhelming success among Chinese investors. Surprisingly, this visa option is popular among Indians and Vietnamese. In the Philippines, we could hardly hear Filipinos applying for it,” he added. Hinrichsen has over a decade of experience in EB-5 immigration. He represents individual investors in obtaining permanent resident status through either regional center or direct EB-5 investments.He was recently recognized by EB-5 Investor Magazine as one of the top 25 legal professionals in the field.Explaining further the visa option, Hinrichsen said that the US Congress created the EB-5 Program in 1990 under the United States Immigration and Citizenship Services (USCIS) in order to stimulate the US economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign investors. In turn, the visa offers holders, including family members (spouse and unmarried children below 21), freedom to study, work, and live in the US without additional immigration requirements.
