EB-5 Regional Centers

The following is research performed by one of my readers who was trying to figure out why the contact for the Intercontinental Regional Center in Colorado was located in Dallas, TX.  She went to the US Citizenship and Immigration Services website to look around and she found that it is a pattern to have the contact person in a different state and there are a significant number of them who are Asian.  The following is the information that she collected:  
USCIS Regional Center Contact Information

 1- The contact person for Alabama, Tennessee, and parts of Mississippi is in Pasadena,CA. Page 1.

This is a common thread throughout these centers, the contact person is not in the state.

2- The number of Asian names that are the contacts is quite high, especially in CA. Randy Wang, Richard Dong, Christina Lau, Jenny Pei Lin, Alex Kim, John Chang. Does this mean that the foreigners are in charge of the program? I'm astounded by how many there are.

3- Henry Liebman of Seattle, WA is the contact in several projects. He seems to be involved in construction, renovation and lending.

5- CMB Export LLC, page 3. Redevelopment and rebuilding of former military bases. The contact here is Patrick Hogan of Rock Island, IL

6- Regional Center of South Florida, LLC; Aviation and Aerospace,  Information Technology,  Maritime,  Homeland security and defense (among other things); page 6     

7- Middle Georgia Regional Center; Military/Demilitarization; Energy ( among other things); page 9

8- Texas Lone Star Enterprises; Private/Public Airports (among other things); page 16

8- Midwest Center for Foreign Investment, LLC,- found in Indiana and Kentucky; Medical banking, e-Health, Data Centers for Regional Health Information Organizations, and Health Information Exchanges, Advanced Technology and Scientific Development (among other things); page10


The researcher ends the email this way:

This is quite spooky. So we are now getting foreign investors to invest in our aviation/aerospace programs? They are investing in Homeland Security? Defense? Our medical records?

I wanted to pass this on and find out if you were aware. I'm sure that you knew a lot of this already.


I didn't know about the Regional Center contacts so the above is new information.  But it fits with other information that I have that I hadn't placed within the big picture of the scheme - only with Idaho's EB-5 Regional Center in Meridian.  I can't remember which article mentioned Brian Su as being connected with EB-5 centers in Idaho, but it doesn't matter because on Mr. Su's website, he lists two centers in Idaho as his clients.     

Artisan Business Group

On a different page on Artisan Business Group website, there was (is?) a page in a section titled, "How to establish an EB-5 Regional Center or EB-5 Investment Project that has very interesting information on the EB-5 program.  It was captured in a pdf for the files.

In this article in the Idaho Statesman, it mentions Raymond Ku, a Taiwanese businessman who made millions being a coyote to get people out of Hong Kong before the Communist Chinese took over, as being the person who approached Idaho Governor Butch Otter in 2007. 

Chinese investments in an Idaho gold mine just one way the state hopes to revive its economy

"When the bottom fell out of Idaho's economy in 2007, Otter, short on cash and desperate for an economic development program, welcomed Ku and his offer to bring investors to Idaho. Otter hosted Ku at a reception at the former Simplot residence that is now the vacant governor's mansion. Later, Ku put on a cowboy hat and went riding."

Raymond Ku - speakers bio

The above Idaho Statesman article also mentions a Russian named Sima Muroff.  It should be noted that Blackhawk (under a different corporate name) is also mentioned on Brian Su's Artisan Group website. 

"At the same time Idaho was trying to set up its regional center, investors in Blackhawk on the River, a real estate development in McCall, were in the process of setting up their own regional center. Real estate investment capital had dried up and Sima Muroff, Blackhawk's principal manager, joined with the Getty Companies to form the Idaho Regional Center"

Sima Muroff is listed on the USCIS website as being the contact for the Idaho State Regional Center.

Another foreign operator named Jeff Don is mentioned in the Idaho Statesman article titled, "Chinese company eyes Boise".

“I think China’s coming over here shows they are willing to collaborate on the reinvigoration of the American industrial base,” said Jeff Don, CEO of Eagle-based C3, which is acting as an Idaho representative for the Chinese company, called Sinomach for short.

Jeff Don is a representative of the Communist Chinese government.  He runs a company called C3-Strategic and he is involved in telecommunications. 

Sinomach is a company owned by the Communist Chinese government.

Jeff Don is mentioned in another article in the Idaho Statesman titled, "Chinese Company officials meet with leaders of Idaho, energy firms". 

Officials of the China National Machinery Industry Corp. met this week with Idaho state, utility and industry officials to show off their ability to design, build and maintain everything from power plants to high transmission lines.

The Chinese-government owned company, called Sinomach for short, is itself a sign of the growing economic and industrial strength China now projects worldwide. For Sinomach the American West provides many of the same opportunities it already has tapped in places like Africa, India, Pakistan, Indonesia and even Iran.

Sinomach, is China’s third largest contractor with more than $14 billion in sales last year. Jeff Don, President of C3 of Eagle arranged the delegation's visit.

They talked to Idaho Power Co. and Rocky Mountain Power and the Mountain States Transmission Project about building the major transmission lines the two utilities have planned. They also talked with several other Idaho energy and manufacturing companies about projects ranging from coal-gasification, nuclear power to turning biogas into power.

Zhang Chun, director general of the company told state officials the United States represents a big market for Sinomach and that he was happy to get a chance to meet with the companies, arranged in part by Paul Kjellander, director of the Idaho Office of Energy Resources.

The visit underscores the changing face of energy development in Idaho, as well as the interest Chinese companies have in both business and investment here. China’s ability and interest to project itself economically worldwide is remarkable similar to the United States at the turn of the 19th Century.

“Your expertise, our expertise and your resources and our resources match up,” said Idaho Lieutenant Gov. Brad Little.

Coincidently, I saw Paul Kjellander's name when I began researching in connection with Idaho Power and their project to implement Smart Meters in Idaho.   Kjellander was appointed by Governor Butch Otter to be the Administrator of the Office of Energy Resources in 2007 (same year that Raymond Ku approached Otter about the EB-5 visa program.)  Notice Kjellander's connection to Boise State University.

I refused access to the subcontractor who came here a few days ago to install a Smart Meter so day before yesterday, Idaho Power sent out one of their own people to talk to me.  He told me that the Idaho Public Utilites Commission had made it a mandate to install the Smart Meters so I called them and spoke to a pit bull with a woman's voice.  She gave the IPUC case number in which Idaho Power was given permission to install the Smart Meters and to include them into the rate base. 

Case Number ITC-E-08-16  Order 30726.    I can't give a direct link to the Order but you can use this link to the IPUC website where you can search on the order number.

As I was tracing the order numbers backward, I found Order Number 29196 that was issued in 2003. 

In Case Nos. IPC-E-02-2 and -3, the Commission directed Idaho Power and the
Energy Efficiency Advisory Group (EEAG) to "evaluate and report to the Commission on the viability of a Time-of-Use residential metering program by September 12, 2002." Order No. 29026 at 22. Time-of-Use (TOU) rates refer to the pricing of electricity based on the estimated cost of electricity during a particular period of the day or "time block."' Time-of-use rates are usually divided into three or four time blocks per 24-hour period (on-peak, mid-peak, off-peak and sometimes super off-peak) and by seasons of the year (summer and winter).

I did a search on Energy Efficiency Advisory Group and found that they are connected to the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI).  They are listed on the Idaho Power website as a "forum for Idaho Power customers, regulatory staff and other interested stakeholders to offer advice to Idaho Power in formulating, implementing and evaluating energy efficiency and demand response programs".   (Smart Meters are "energy efficiency" and "demand response programs" - the demand response is to cut off your access to electricity when they damn well feel like it).

One of the more interesting things I found was the minutes to a meeting posted on the Idaho Power website that discussed all of the areas in which changes will have to be made (read money that will have to be spent) to save a few kilowatts of electricity. 

February 18, 2010 Minutes of the EEAG Group

I've gotten a little bit off track from the subject that I began this page with so I'll tie it all back together by asking you to note the connection to Hoku, the now Communist Chinese company in Pocatello Idaho with the EPRI via Karl Stahlkopf; and the connection between Hoku and IdaTech which is a subsidiary of the IdaCorp holding company that also owns Idaho Power.

So, I've given a long answer to short question:  So we are now getting foreign investors to invest in our aviation/aerospace programs? They are investing in Homeland Security? Defense? Our medical records?" 

The answer is yes... and they are also heavily involved in our critical infrastructure.  And so my question for all public officials, military, intelligence agencies, etc.  is:  Will you please define for me the meaning of "National Security"  and "Homeland Defense"  because the only thing I can come up with after finding what I have, is that National Security and Homeland Defense means serving the interests of the perpetraitors of the coup d'etat and that they are taking over our economy and our critical infrastructure through the special zoning that I've documented in many places on my website.   And it may very well be that the 300 visas allocated to the U.S. Attorney General for foreign investors noted in the legislation below, but just be enough to buy the complicity of the U.S. Attorney General because I can't think of a single reason why else the Attorney General would need foreign investor visas set aside just for him/her.

About a week ago, I found the 1992 legislation that had the Regional Centers as a pilot program. See the blue section below for the text. 

It's also useful to recall the 1990 legislation that created the EB-5 visa program.  I wrote about that in the following report:  Invitation to Terror


1992 Appropriations Bill H.R. 5678    Signed by the President on October 6, 1992, PL. 102-395 Excerpt begins at the bottom of page 57.  It should be noted that Congress rarely eliminates programs, they just continue to vote for more money for it so even though the set aside visas for the Secretary of State and the Attorney General were only for a period of five years, chances are excellent that the program is still in effect.


SEC. 610. PILOT IMMIGRATION PROGRAM- (a) Of the visas otherwise
available under section 203(b)(5) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8
U.S.C. 1153(b)(5)), the Secretary of State, together with the Attorney
General, shall set aside visas for a pilot program to implement the provisions
of such section. Such pilot program shall involve a regional center in the
United States for the promotion of economic growth, including increased
export sales, improved regional productivity, job creation, and increased
domestic capital investment.
(b) For purposes of the pilot program established in subsection (a), beginning
on October 1, 1992, but no later than October 1, 1993, the Secretary of
State, together with the Attorney General, shall set aside 300 visas annually
for five years to include such aliens as are eligible for admission
section 203(b)(5) of the Immigration and Nationality Act and this section, as
well as spouses or children which are eligible, under the terms of the
Immigration and Nationality Act, to accompany or follow to join such aliens.
(c) In determining compliance with section 203(b)(5)(A)(iii) of the
Immigration and Nationality Act, and notwithstanding the requirements of 8
CFR 204.6, the Attorney General shall permit aliens admitted under the pilot
program described in this section to establish reasonable methodologies for
determining the number of jobs created by the pilot program, including such
jobs which are estimated to have been created indirectly through revenues
generated from increased exports resulting from the pilot program.

SEC. 611. (a) Funds appropriated under this Act to the Legal Services
Corporation and distributed to each grantee funded in fiscal year 1993
pursuant to the number of poor people determined by the Bureau of the
Census to be within its geographical area shall be distributed in the following

(1) grants from the Legal Services Corporation and contracts entered
into with the Legal Services Corporation under section 1006(a)(1) of the
Legal Services Corporation Act, as amended, shall be maintained in
fiscal year 1993 at not less than the annual level at which each grantee
and contractor was funded in fiscal year 1992 pursuant to Public Law
102-140; and
(2) any increase in funding above the fiscal year 1992 level for grants
and contracts under section 1006(a)(1) shall be awarded to grantees
and contractors funded at the lowest levels per-poor-person (calculated
for each grantee or contractor by dividing each such grantee's or
contractor's fiscal year 1992 annual grant level by the number of poor
persons within its geographical area under the 1990 census) so as to
fund the largest number of programs possible at an equal per-poor person
amount; or
(3) any increase above the fiscal year 1992 level for grants and
contracts to migrant programs under section 1006(a)(1) shall be
awarded on a per migrant (including dependents) basis (calculated for
each grantee or contractor by dividing each such grantee's or
contractor's fiscal year 1992 grant level by the number of migrants,
including dependents, within that grantee's or contractor's State as
determined by the 1992 Report of the Tomas Rivera Center migrant
enumeration project) and distributed in the following order:

(A) forty percent to migrant grantees and contractors funded at the
lowest levels per migrant (including dependents) so as to fund the
largest number of programs possible at an equal per migrant and
dependent amount;
(B) forty percent to migrant grantees and contractors such that
each grantee or contractor funded at a level less than $19.09 per
migrant and dependent shall be increased by an equal percentage
of the amount by which such grantee's funding, including the
increases under subparagraph (A) above, falls below $19.09 per
migrant and dependent, within its State; and
(C) twenty percent on an equal migrant and dependent basis to all
migrant grantees and contractors funded below $19.09 per migrant
and dependent within its State.
(b) None of the funds appropriated under this Act to the Legal Services
Corporation shall be expended for any purpose prohibited or limited by or
contrary to any of the provisions of--
(1) section 607 of Public Law 101-515, and that, except for the funding
formula, all funds appropriated for the Legal Services Corporation shall
be subject to the same terms and conditions set forth in section 607 of
Public Law 101-515 and all references to `1991' in section 607 of Public
Law 101-515 shall be deemed to be `1993' unless paragraph (2)
(2) authorizing legislation for fiscal year 1993 for the Legal Services
Corporation as enacted into law.
This Act may be cited as the `Departments of Commerce, Justice, and State,
the Judiciary, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 1993'.
