Pappu,

Thanks for the update. Can you please share the complete bill? Eagerly awaiting to read it.

Any idea on when they are planning to introduce this in the senate? The news keeps oscillating between doing immigration now and not doing it now. Sen. Reid's statement also seems to be oscillating between the two positions. Any idea on what is eventually going to happen? Any rough time lines?

Appreciate the update and contributions.

Default Thank you so much

Thank you so much.. Now we need to make sure these are preserved for the entire battle.. I can see few easy targets. But then I wouldn't worry as much about them as I would for the existing backlog especially for EB3I folks.

Thumbs up Now Reid has to take immigration up rather than climate change

This is good news..atleast a draft is out. Now Reid cannot complain there is no immigration bill.

I don't see Grahams name mentioned.

Arrow There are goodies for both antis and us...

Good:
a. "It authorizes the recapture of immigrant visas lost to bureaucratic delay"
b. "To address the fact that some countries face unreasonably long backlogs, the per country family immigration limits will be amended from 7 to 10 percent of total admissions."
c. "At the moment, high-skilled workers are prevented from emigrating to the Unites States due to restrictive caps on their entry. In order to accomplish this goal, a green card will be immediately available to foreign students with an advanced degree from a United States institution of higher education in a field of science, technology, engineering, or mathematics, and who possess an offer of employment from a United States employer in a field related to their degree."

This could be dangerous:
"This proposal also authorizes the creation of the Commission on Employment-Based Immigration. The Commission shall have the purpose of studying America’s employment-based immigration system to recommend policies that promote economic growth and competitiveness while minimizing job displacement, wage depression and unauthorized employment. Each year, the Commission shall publish a report to Congress detailing all relevant economic data surrounding the usage of all of America’s employment-based visas and green cards and shall issue recommendations."

and more on H1-B & L1 restrictions that are bad.

"Immediate Green card availability for foreign students with US masters degree" ==> Does it apply for "new" students or all students who graduated in the past too?

what about folks who completed US degree years ago and are in backlogged EB lines?!?!
