I read about this program some time back, and noticed that not only does it allow residency, but, by coming here legally, it also provides something of a fast track to citizenship. It also requires those setting up these businesses to hire at least 10 non-family employees.

The only concern I have is would those non-family employees be American citizens? I know of one company that my son-in-law worked at, owned by a Chinese family, that hired people that were not in this country legally. Why? Not only were they able to pay substandard wages, but also were able to ignore many OSHA and other labor laws. The company was reported, but nothing was ever done to correct the problems.
