A federal appeals court ruled yesterday that the Immigration and Naturalization Service acted illegally when it retroactively changed the rules for a visa program that allows foreigners to become permanent U.S. residents by investing at least $500,000 in an American business. The ruling means that about 200 investors in a Maryland-based firm, AIS, will be spared from near-certain deportation. The decision is the latest development in the 12-year history of the controversial investor visa program.
