So that means, on the issue of EB-5, which supplies immigrant investors visas in exchange for purportedly job-creating investments (but in reality is like "legalized crack cocaine" for developers, to quote an admirer), some right-wingers get it.
Schumer challenger Long
As reported in Newsday 8/18/16, and in an accompanying press release, Long has attacked Schumer--whose fourth-largest individual donor is Fragomen, a law firm specializing in EB-5 (as the Real Deal reported last December)--for being the "King of Pay to Play."

See what I call the Bed-Stuy Boomerang, for Atlantic Yards, which extends east and north from the project site.
Conservative syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin (not historically a Trump fan, but hoping he takes a hard line on immigration overall) gets it too regarding EB-5.
In her book Sold Out : How High-Tech Billionaires & Bipartisan Beltway Crapweasels Are Screwing America's Best & Brightest Workers, written with John Miano, Malkin devotes several pages to EB-5, and in the segment devoted to Atlantic Yards quotes my work.
Even Schumer gets a mention.
