Miller Mayer immigration attorney Steve Yale-Loehr was quoted by The Cornell Chronicle in “Aided by Cornell legal clinic, Ghana native rebuilding life in US.”
Steve stated, “It’s a stacked deck against an asylum seeker, particularly if they don’t have an attorney to represent them. We’re glad that our clinic here at Cornell Law School can represent at least a few people each year, but it’s like putting your finger in a dike.”
Steve was also quoted by The East Bay Times in “Green cards: Company in $50 million settlement promises to pay back would-be immigrant-investors, but some remain unsatisfied.”
Mr. Yale Loehr stated that money invested in U.S. projects by EB-5 investors “helps, or at least can help, stimulate the U.S. economy and create jobs for U.S. workers, but it is complex and it has to be done well.”
Steve was also quoted by The Houston Chronicle in “Trump’s decision to end DACA faces Supreme Court scrutiny.”
Steve provided his perspective on how he foresees the Supreme Court might vote: “The Supreme Court has traditionally given the president wide latitude on immigration policy decisions, but they could try to avoid the thorny constitutional issues by ruling on narrower statutory grounds.”
Steve was interviewed on All Things Considered in “Prices Increasing For Visas To Foreign Nationals Who Invest In American Companies.”
STEVE YALE-LOEHR: I think we’ll still see a fair number of people willing to put that money down.
SCOTT: Steve Yale-Loehr teaches immigration law at Cornell University. He predicts in the long run, there will always be demand for this kind of visa. But in the short-term, the new higher cost could lead some foreign investors to turn away from the U.S. to other countries with similar programs.
YALE-LOEHR: Obviously countries like to see money coming in if it’s going to create jobs. And so the United States is competing with these other countries.
