Foreign Investor Program Offers Green Cards for Cash It's an immigration program for the rich. The EB-5 program allows up to 10,000 people a year to immigrate to the US in exchange for an investment of at least $500,000 in an American business. If the investment helps create ten jobs, the investor becomes eligible for permanent residency. Last year, more than seven-thousand people used the program. Kevin Sullivan, senior correspondent for the Washington Post , explains.

Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
