What is the EB-5 program?
The EB-5, or Immigrant Investor Program, was created by Congress in 1990. Its purpose was to stimulate the economy through job creation and capital investment by immigrant investors by creating a new commercial enterprise or investing in a troubled business, according to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website. Foreign investors put in a capital investment (either $500,000 under one pathway or $1 million under another pathway) into an eligible project. The investment must create at least 10 full-time jobs for qualifying U.S. workers generally within two years. If all terms of the program are met, investors are able to get a Green Card.

For months, the union has been laying the groundwork for a strike and on Tuesday, the union emailed teachers seeking authorization a strike.

CCEA members will decide whether to authorize a strike at the beginning of the next school year,” CCEA president Vikki Courtney wrote.
