Muslim soldier’s dad linked to ‘citizenship for sale’ immigration programs; here’s what else the media buried

It seems the Muslim father of a U.S. soldier killed in Iraq who has been engaged in a public feud with Donald Trump could have some highly questionable work affiliations.

Khizr M. Khan’s website states that he works specifically with two controversial programs often accused of letting immigrants buy their way into the U.S., The Washington Examiner reported.

Khan helps clients navigate the E-2 and EB-5 programs that let overseas investors buy into U.S. companies and provides green cards for them and family members.

“The E-2 and EB-5 are two of the most notoriously abused visa categories that essentially allow wealthy foreigners to buy their way to U.S. residency, and possibly citizenship, with a relatively modest investment,” said Jessica Vaughan, the policy director for the Center for Immigration Studies, according to the Times.

Critics of the EB-5 program have been pushing Congress to get rid of the program to no avail. Vaughn’s explanation is a testimony as to why EB-5 has critics up in arms.

“The EB-5 is literally a ‘citizenship for sale’ program in which a visa for a whole family can be bought for as little $500,000,” Vaughan said. “It is literally a ‘citizenship for sale’ program, and it’s an amazing deal. Compared to other countries, America is the Wal-Mart of investor visa programs,” she added.

While there is no indication, according to the Times, that any of Khan’s clients have been indicted in the controversies surrounding the programs, more disturbing reports have surfaced about Khan’s work-related affairs.

Not only are the Kahn’s deeply tied to the business of Muslim immigration, it looks as if they may also be tied to Saudi Arabia and the Clinton Foundation, Breitbart reported.

According to Breitbart:

Khan, according to Intelius as also reported by Walid Shoebat, used to work at the law firm Hogan Lovells, LLP, a major D.C. law firm that has been on retainer as the law firm representing the government of Saudi Arabia in the United States for years. Citing federal government disclosure forms, the Washington Free Beacon reported the connection between Saudi Arabia and Hogan Lovells a couple weeks ago.

“Hogan Lovells LLP, another U.S. firm hired by the Saudis, is registered to work for the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia through 2016, disclosures show,” Joe Schoffstall of the Free Beacon reported.

The government of Saudi Arabia, of course, has donated heavily to the Clinton Foundation.

“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has given between $10 and $25 million to the foundation while Friends of Saudi Arabia has contributed between $1 and $5 million,” Schoffstall wrote.

Trump has denounced Saudi Arabia’s donations to the Clinton Foundation and months ago declared that Hillary Clinton, who is largely running under the guise of “women’s rights” should give the money back due to the country’s abhorrent treatment of women.
