Antonio Palacios, Mexican businessman, decided a few years back to pursue the EB-5 immigrant investor visa. This allows participants to access green cards in exchange for investing hundreds of thousands of dollars in American development projects.

The visa offered what Palacios saw as the only realistic path to expanding the reach of his technology company, Telnorm.

So he invested $500,000 through the EB-5 program and today, Palacios, his family and his business have now made the transition to America from what was a comfortable lifestyle in Mexico.

“It’s a big decision,” said Palacios, whose company operates as Teltech in the U.S. “But we saw the potential.”

His story serves as a reminder that there are real people who are looking for a change can move to the U.S.
