The Stereotype Busters: America’s New Immigrants. Forget what you think you know about immigrants to the United States. The new wave of immigration includes many highly educated, wealthy, and business savvy adults and their families. They are using their wealth, lawyers, and U.S. based companies to skip long immigration lines in order to apply for business related EB-5 (investor) or H-1B (highly skilled) visas. The story is the same – real people looking to have a better life somewhere other than their native land. But these immigrants have a different set of dreams, filled with multimillion-dollar luxury homes, high-end fashion, and the latest in electronics and other high-tech gear. As investors, entrepreneurs, and researchers, they are prospering and creating a boon for regional economies where they are settling. The new guy in the elevator just might be your new boss.
