Randall L. Sidlosca

Arnstein & Lehr Miami Partner Randall Sidlosca recently appeared on a November 25 Fox News Channel segment, “EB-5 Visa Program Rewards Immigrants Who Create U.S. Jobs.” The focus of the segment was how the EB-5 program works for immigrant investors and the upswing of participants in the initiative.

Mr. Sidlosca provided some insight into the program’s scope and benefits. He assists immigrant investors, which have the required capital and job creation capabilities, with finding investment projects nationwide. Mr. Sidlosca emphasized the benefits to both the foreign immigrant investor and the United States. He summed it up by saying the U.S. needs the creation of more jobs, and the immigrants receive a permanent green card and a beneficial place to invest their money. It is a win-win situation.

The Canada Report – with Insights from Aaron Singer, Clark Wilson

Without a doubt, companies face challenges when doing business in other countries.
