One thing curious to me is that most of the comments to the article is negative. But I wonder how can the commenters expect the foreign investors to invest in a U.S. business if the foreign investors do not receive something in return, i.e., green cards, when they certainly are not receiving all that much profit? Specifically, I am curious what these commenters think the foreign investors should receive as a benefit in return for investing $500,000 to $1 Million USD in a U.S. business?

Feel free to comment what benefit you think is a fair exchange for foreign investors' investing $500,000 in a U.S. business which do not provide all that much returns? I have never heard any EB-5 investor who made a good profit on his or her EB-5 investment with this anemic U.S. economy.
