>>> The Kushner family real-estate company is busy cashing in on Jared's membership in the Trump family/administration. On May 6, 2017, in the Beijing Ritz-Carlton, Jared's sister Nicole Meyer made a presentation to Chinese investors, asking them to buy into a highrise development in New Jersey. To sweeten the deal, investors who cough up at least half a million dollars get fast-tracked green cards (i.e. permanent residency in the US) in a program overseen by - as they pointed out - daddy Trump. To make it even more clear that this is about buying US residency by giving the Kushners huge sums of money, the event's brochure read: “Invest $500,000 and immigrate to the United States.”
Even though the ballroom pitch was publicly advertised, reporters were physically removed, and the Washington Post's Beijing reporter was forced to delete audio, video, and photos of the event.
It's obvious that those involved didn't want us to see any of this, so on this page you'll find documentation in the form of tweets, photos, video, articles, and an ad. (I have screenshots of all embedded tweets and accompanying photos, in case any get deleted.)
The resulting articles:

They tried to force me to leave, then grabbed my phone. I could only get it back if I agreed to delete all recordings and videos.— Congcong Zhang (@daphnewelkin5) May 8, 2017

I asked Kushner's sister whether $150 mil in Chinese investment posed a conflict of interest. "Leave us alone!" her entourage yelled. pic.twitter.com/fpwFBqltXT— Javier C. Hernández (@HernandezJavier) May 6, 2017
PR reps kicked us out of Kushner meeting with investors in Beijing, saying, "We don't want to make a scene" https://t.co/6QzEhEUHfS— Javier C. Hernández (@HernandezJavier) May 7, 2017
We were barred from talking to investors @ Kushner mtg. But many said later they were there for only 1 reason: Trump https://t.co/6QzEhEUHfS— Javier C. Hernández (@HernandezJavier) May 7, 2017
CNN Segment with Washington Post reporter Emily Rauhala
Although Jared's sister usually goes by the name Nicole Meyer - as shown in her LinkedIn profile - everything related to this pitch identified her as Nicole Kushner Meyer.
