    Quite!

    Perhaps they should have paid a fraction of that $500K to some smugglers and they can cross the Rio Grande in style. Why bother doing it legally?

    I don't necessarily disagree with trailboss that those folks who did invest got screwed. However, when you're basically just paying cash for a green card, I don't really feel bad about it going belly-up.
    Not saying it's 'OK', but I'm also not going to lose sleep over it or feel bad. I'm sure many others feel the same way, which is I think what trailboss was saying.
    FWIW a lot of the investors have NOT gotten a green card yet because of Q's fraud and inability to create the requisite number of jobs.

    I think I didn't articulate myself well previously...

    I am in no way OK with the fraud and agree with them being persecuted, etc. I fundamentally don't agree with the EB-5 program itself I guess which just allows rich people to essentially buy a green card. Anyone who gave $500k is probably more mad about being defrauded out of a green card than they miss that $500k.

    All that said... nobody deserves to lose any amount of money due to fraud.

    Precisely; the whole thing is artificial monkeying with markets, which never ends well. And in this case, handing Jay Peak $500 MILLION is a massive competitive advantage that not everyone can enjoy. The entire thing is BS, even without the massive fraud.

    I heard tonight from a fairly reliable source that Vail was never interested in Jay and that Alterra has pulled out.

    EB-5 was always a scam

    That’s all my source would tell me.

    They did just pick up a new place. Plus, they had 180 million sitting in the bank.
