Taking Care of Business...Students (EI 5 - Annie Marra)
When Cornell University's Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management recently reached out to its international alumni, it wasn't part of its annual giving campaign. Instead, Cornell was trying to make sure its MBA grads were getting the immigration support they needed in a climate where denials and processing delays are on the rise. Annie Marra, Associate Director of the Johnson School's Career Management Center, was the driving force behind this initiative. She joins David to discuss the results of her alumni outreach, as well as her family's incredible immigration story.

Building the Next Big Thing (EI 3 - Fernando Gomez-Baquero)
Nearly half of all Fortune 500 companies were founded by an immigrant or the child of an immigrant according to the Center for American Entrepreneurship.  And yet, there is no visa for entrepreneurs.  In fact, being an entrepreneur can make obtaining a visa more difficult due to immigration limitations on self-employment.  Join our conversation with Cornell Tech's Fernando Gomez-Baquero as he discusses how he personally overcame these immigration challenges, and is now working with the Cornell Tech Runway Program to help other entrepreneurs overcome these challenges.

Breaking News Roundtable: NEW EB-5 Regulations (BONUS - Stephen Yale-Loehr and Kristal Ozmun)
On Wednesday this week, the Department of Homeland Security formally published new regulations overhauling the Employment Creation Visa, more commonly known as EB-5. Under the EB-5 program, if a foreign national invests in the United States, and thereby creates ten jobs for U.S. workers, the foreign national can receive a green card. The newly announced regulations significantly restrict the program. To discuss these late-breaking changes, we are publishing our first bonus episode! In this breaking news roundtable, EB-5 experts Stephen Yale-Loehr and Kristal Ozmun join David in discussing the EB-5 program changes, and how they may result in fewer jobs for U.S. workers being created by the program.
