U.S. Green Card New York Ferris Wheel


New York is building one of the biggest Ferris wheels in the world. The wheel, which is under construction on Staten Island, will stand 630 feet high with 36 pods that will hold 40 people each with a panoramic view of the New York skyline. The idea behind the wheel is to capitalize on the millions of tourist who ride the Staten Island ferry past the Statue of Liberty. It will cost $35 per person to ride this bad boy but the only problem is, it’s to expensive to build, with a hefty $500 million for just the wheel. To help with the cost the U.S. government started a program that will grant green cards to foreigners in exchange for job creating investments in the U.S. Desgraciadamente there are very few Latino investors and one reason is no hay dinero.

Most of the immigrant investors so far are Chinese. Chinese make up the third largest group of foreign tourists to New York, behind the British and the Brazilians. So far the Wheel has raised over $170 million from 300 Chinese investors. Temporary immigrant visas are expected to be issued to the Chinese investors and their families within the year. To bad Latinos could not take advantage of this opportunity.
