New Complaint Alleges Harry Reid Intervened On Behalf Of Immigration Visa Scam To Benefit Son’s Client

 

Reid Ethics Complaint

 

 

” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is the target of an ethics and conflict-of-interest complaint over his involvement in a visa-investor venture.

  The complaint, filed by the nonprofit activist group Cause of Action, asserts that Reid intervened with top immigration officials to benefit EB-5 visa seekers. The applicants were law clients of Reid’s son.

  Among the officials contacted by Reid was Alejandro Mayorkas, then director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

“ Despite the fact that these applications were ineligible for appeal, Sen. Reid’s efforts to lobby USCIS resulted in the reconsideration and approval of these applications, as well as the subsequent securing of millions of dollars in foreign and domestic funds for the (Las Vegas) SLS Hotel & Casino and American Dream Fund EB-5 Regional Center — both of which are major contributors to the Democratic Party,” Cause of Action Executive Director Daniel Epstein wrote.”
