DNC Sideshow Khan Involved With Visa Programs Accused of Selling American Citizenship
If you've been following the faux news battle between Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and the Muslim man whose son died in battle, news that the man is involved with a program that sells American citizenship would appear to balance the sides some. If this article isn't enough to convince you that the man has a hidden agenda and probably is less than trustworthy, nothing will.
Khizr M. Khan was brought onstage during the Democratic National Convention last week in Philadelphia to accuse Trump of not having "sacrificed anything" for America. Khan, whose son was killed in action while fighting for the U.S. has taken some flak, but mostly from Trump himself.
Trump criticized the man and rebutted his argument that he hasn't sacrificed anything, saying that he's sacrificed a lot.
But the news that Khan is an immigration lawyer who is involved with a program that sells green cards to potential immigrants does tarnish the pedestal that Democrats have put him on.
Khan, who operates his own law firm, specializes in helping immigrants work the E-2 and EB-5 loopholes in the immigration system. Those two sections of the law allow persons who invest at least $500,000 in an American business to get green cards for themselves, a spouse, and all their non-adult children.
The Center for Immigration Studies reported that Khan's business is essentially "a 'citizenship for sale' program, and it's an amazing deal. Compared to other countries, America is the Walmart of investor visa programs."
Those words didn't come from Trump's team, they came from Jessica Vaughn, the policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies, which is a nonpartisan research group.
If a nonpartisan group is accusing someone of selling visas, the truth is probably even dicier.
But Democrats are quick to deny any and all claims that Khan is less than reputable. And why should they? He's bashing Trump and he's a Muslim. That's all that the Democratic narrative calls for and he's playing his role perfectly.
