[Q] How many USCIS-designated Regional Centers are there as of August 15, 2009?
A flippant answer would be "too many", and my honest and serious answer would be "too many for the current EB-5 market demand". There are around 50 or more designated regional centers scattered throughout the U.S., but my feeling is there are greater number of regional centers which are kinda inactive.
I have been saying this for some time, but here I go again: "Regional Center market will grow and shrink depending on what USCIS and Congress will do and not do." To reach the next level of growth, EB-5 Regional Center Program needs to be made permanent quickly and USCIS EB-5 HQ (overall policy setting division) and CSC (adjudicating division) need to work closely together to make reasonable, consistent and sensible decisions that are in keeping with the fundamental purpose of EB-5 Regional Center Program.
