Case:SEC vs PATH AMERICA, LLC, ET AL

Jurisdiction:Federal District Court for the Western District of Washington

Status:Pending

Civil / Criminal:Criminal

Cause(s) of Action:

Fraud

Description:

SEC asserts that the defendants have exploited the EB-5 program to defraud investors seeking investment returns and a path to United States residency. To date, SEC asserts that Defendants have fraudulently raised at least $125 million through their sales of securities to 250 investors and collected at least $11 million in additional fees. The SEC further asserts that investors were provided with a Private Placement Memorandum (“PPM”) that describes the securities offering and states that the offering is designed to provide investors with a path to residency in the United States through the EB-5 Program. However, the Offering Defendants knew, or were reckless in not knowing, at the time investors were provided the PPMs that Defendants’ use of funds contrary to what was disclosed in filings to USCIS put in jeopardy the investors’ EB-5 petitions and ability to obtain residency in the United States

APPEAL OF IMMIGRANT INVESTOR PROGRAM DECISION

US CIS designated the Applicant as a regional center to participate in the program in August of 2013. In August of 2015, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filed a complaint against the Applicant, its principal, and other related entities in district court. Based on the SEC action, the Chief, Immigrant Investor Program, terminated the Applicant's designation in March 2016, finding that it no longer served the purpose of promoting economic growth. The matter is now before us on appeal. The Applicant submits additional evidence and a letter indicating it is under new management. It states it will promote economic growth by pursuing a previously proposed project.
