The EB-5 immigrant investor visa scam scandals just won’t go away.
The FBI released a heavily redacted file on late EB-5 subject Richard Benda. Benda may have had financial dirt on the former SD governor, Mike Rounds.
A few years back the state of VT shut down the EB-5 program in that state entirely.
Local biz people + Chamber of Commerce uses the EB-5 program as a source of revenue, while foreign looters see it as a ticket into America.
“Benda, a former South Dakota cabinet secretary for the Department of Tourism and Development in the Mike Rounds administration, allegedly committed suicide while hunting near Lake Andes, S.D. in October. 20, 2013”.
