SEC Gets Immigration Atty DQ'd In EB-5 Scam Suit

A Chicago-based immigration attorney the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission accused of swindling foreign investors seeking EB-5 visas can no longer represent numerous supplemental defendants in the case, with an Illinois federal judge determining that conflicts of interest existed.

The SEC alleges that attorney Taher Kameli lined his own pockets with some of the nearly $89 million he collected from a variety of mostly Chinese and Iranian investors who put money into senior-living construction projects in Illinois and Florida in the hopes of gaining permanent U.S.
