WASHINGTON: Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) called on his Congressional colleagues to join him in sending a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on the need to address the employment-based green card backlog as part of budget reconciliation.

Any package that addresses longstanding immigration priorities must include relief for the approximately 1.2 million individuals unable to receive a green card primarily due to country-based discrimination.

“I am pleased that tackling our broken immigration system is part of the budget reconciliation discussion,” said Congressman Krishnamoorthi. “However, it is imperative any immigration package include provisions to address the employment-based green card backlog, which is damaging American competitiveness and abandoning 1.2 million people to perpetual nonimmigrant status. I call on my colleagues to immediately raise this important issue with leadership and ensure that relief for backlogged high-skilled workers is included in the final package. Our economic recovery from COVID-19 depends on it.”

The text of the letter Congressman Krishnamoorthi is leading, along with Reps. Kathy Manning (D-NC) and Deborah Ross (D-NC), can be read here and will be sent in one week.
