H.R 3012 was introduced by Rep. Jason Chaffetz (UT-3] and co-sponsored by a bipartisan group of 11 House members, including House Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith (TX-21) and Immigration Subcommittee Ranking Member Zoe Lofgren (CA-16). This bill amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to eliminate the per country cap for employment-based immigrants and also adjusts the limitations on family visas without increasing the total number of available visas. As a net result, this bill drastically reduces green card wait times for applicants from countries that are “retrogressed” due to backlogs in the employment-based immigration system created by the 7% per-country limits.
Being an election year, the Democrats are in the front seat of pushing a legislation on legalizing Illegals – DREAM Act which is being pushed by our senior Senator Harry Reid to capitalize on the hispanic votes. However, the DREAM Act is becoming a nightmare for those who have legally resided in the United States for a long time and have contributed their professional skills to the US businesses and industry. Green Card backlog is seriously effecting many South Asians who are legally admitted to the United States on work visas.
