    The program – known as the City of Dallas Regional Center – is a citywide adoption of a federal immigration program that trades green cards and the promise of permanent residency for investments of $500,000 or $1 million.

    According to Natinsky, hundreds of investors – particularly from China but also from Mexico, South America and elsewhere – are lining up for the chance to get in.

    The investment program is complex and governed by strict federal immigration and customs rules that determine who gets in and who's kept out. The process of clearing investors can take months.

    Under the program's rules, investors who put up $1 million can invest anywhere in Dallas. Investors who put up $500,000 must invest in areas where unemployment is 50 percent higher than the national average.

    And every investor's contribution must create at least 10 permanent jobs. So if 10 investors put up $10 million, their project has to directly or indirectly result in 100 new jobs.
