Quick Update on my "Silence"

I've received a number of emails from readers in the past few weeks asking why I have been invisible and my normally chatty self has been anything but that.  I regret to inform my readers that the reason for my silence has been my 88 year old mother's health: as an only child, I am solo at bat and it's been weeks of hospital emergency rooms, rehabilitiation, and doctors.  She is currently stabilized and doing well but every day brings a new challenge.

I normally write Immigration Insider early in the morning, before the phone starts ringing.  Because of the time demands her health issues have created, I've been dedicating that time of day to visiting her, dealing with doctors, etc.  I am hopeful that her continued improvement will mean that I am able to resume my blogs with the regularity you've come to expect.

One last thing: remember the really low quality video blogs I did last year, some of which were inaudible, some of which were excruciatingly boring, and some of which - the "Miata Cam" comes to mind - were the subject of much commentary and merriment?  Well, I will soon be starting the video blogs again but this time with studio lighting, a great HD camera, and a pro mic.  The content may not be any better and I sure won't look any prettier...but the video and audio should make the whole experience a little more tolerable!

Thanks for your notes and well-wishes, I look forward to getting back on my EB-5 bandwagon ASAP! JEL


Folks, I sent the letter below to those who attended/tried to attend our Dubai seminar.  It occured to me that we might have some readers who have found us since the seminar and who might be interested in "face time' with us regarding their immigrant investor opportunities in the U.S.   Please read the below and if you'd like to meet with Namjoo, write him SOON because he's booking up quickly!

I am writing to those of you who attended Lake Point EcoVentures EB-5 Regional Center / Private Placement Partners U.S. Immigration Investment Seminar in Dubai as well as to those of you who were unable to attend.  Namjoo Hashemi, Private Placement Partner’s West Coast Director will be in Tehran and Dubai in the next week and a half for private follow up meetings with prospective investors interested in securing U.S. permanent residency for themselves and their families via the Lake Point Ecoventures opportunity.  The project is limited to a total of 20 investors of  U.S. $500,000 each and reservation funds are escrowed with JP Morgan Bank, NA, in demand-redeemable, interest bearing accounts, until such time that USCIS approves the project...which we think will be "any day now!" 

If you would like to meet with Mr. Hashemi to obtain information on reserving a spot in this exclusive and carefully structured investment opportunity – the only one which I have personally formed from the ground up and put my name on – please write him at , as appointment opportunities are limited!

A happy new year to everyone and best wishes for your continued success in 2011!
