“ I feel privileged to live in Nevada and work in the industry I’m in. USIF LLC is part of IIUSA’s advisory council which is vital in the advocacy of the EB-5 program and who’s primary mission is permanent authorization of the EB-5 Regional Center Program by Congress after 20+ years of bipartisan support and current record breaking economic impact statistics. This support and Regional Center activity has been vital in the resurgence of the economy at home here in Nevada, helping to finish several new projects in Las Vegas and hopefully many more to come in the future in both Northern and Southern Nevada. With a new burgeoning mix of industries coming to the Silver State in recent years, it is truly an exciting time to be here.”
