"Investment Immigration"

"Investment Immigration"

A Maryland casino is courting international investors through a program that offers them green cards in exchange. We explore how "investment immigration works."

Under current immigration law, international investors can obtain green cards if they fund businesses and projects that create or preserve jobs in the United States. "Investment immigrants" are bankrolling resorts and casinos, including a controversial new project in Maryland. We explore how the program works and how it's shaping a new generation of immigrants.
