In light of Senator Harry Reid’s (D-NV) expected nomination announcement of Alejandro Mayorkas as Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Cause of Action (CoA) sent a request for investigation to Chairwoman Barbara Boxer (D-CA) of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Ethics, calling for the investigation of Senator Reid’s communications with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officials and the potential fast-tracking of EB-5 immigrant investor applications.

CoA is continuing to investigate EB-5 program abuse, and just last week, we wrote to Chairman Issa of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee urging the committee to examine USCIS’ abuse of the EB-5 program.
