It cuts both ways.

We don't know about other areas of immigration areas, but we are all for CSC strictly following the "rule of law" and not approving those EB-5 cases which have not met the statutory/regulatory EB-5 requirements by preponderance of evidence. However, this should also mean that CSC should follow only the stated legal requirements and not impose extra requirements not found in applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. More and more, we feel that USCIS is "making up" and imposing additional requirements in violation of the "rule of law". Oh, we forgot that all the USCIS guidance memos are not to be considered a binding law. :)

We are very confident that if the above approach is followed by USCIS, as suggested by Senator Grassley, that more, not less, number of EB-5 cases will be approved.
