Zhang v. USCIS
"Certain visas are available to prospective immigrants who invest capital in the United States. A longstanding regulation, promulgated in 1991, defines the required capital to include cash or indebtedness secured by the immigrant’s assets. This appeal presents the question whether, under the regulation, the proceeds of a loan qualify as cash or indebtedness. We hold that loan proceeds qualify as cash, and we therefore affirm a decision affording relief to a class of foreign investors denied visas under a contrary interpretation adopted and announced by the government in 2015."
