Major EB-5 Victory: Mirror Lake Village v. Wolf (CADC)

Mirror Lake Village v. Wolf

"The plaintiffs in this case are Mirror Lake Village, LLC, a new commercial enterprise set to construct and operate a senior living facility in rural Washington, and five foreign nationals who each contributed $500,000 to Mirror Lake. The foreign nationals sought to obtain lawful permanent resident status under the EB-5 immigrant-investor program. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) denied their EB-5 visa petitions on the stated ground that none had made a qualifying investment. The plaintiffs contend that the denials were arbitrary and capricious. Because USCIS failed to offer a reasoned explanation for its denials, we agree."
