Though issues of discrimination and diversity are at the very least starting to be addressed in other industries, the city’s brokerage, investment and development communities are lagging behind when it comes to leveling the playing field.

    For the cover story of our January issue, The Real Deal took an in-depth look at this exclusionary culture, the female and minority players who are defying the odds and what needs to happen for change to occur. [WATCH].

    As experts pondered the future of EB-5 during The Real Deal’s second annual U.S. Real Estate Showcase and Forum in Shanghai, the conversation naturally turned to President-elect Donald Trump. Will his tough stance on immigration affect the controversial visa program’s future?

    Former New York Gov. George Pataki said the program would have a powerful friend in Trump.

    “There’s a lot of misunderstanding on that,” Pataki told TRD managing web editor Hiten Samtani, who moderated the event’s “EB-5 and U.S. Immigration” panel. “Donald Trump won for a lot of reasons — one was his very strong stance against illegal immigration. and often, in the media and in the public, the distinction between legal and illegal immigration gets lost.”
