NEELA PANDYARaja
WASHINGTON: The House of Representatives passed A bipartisan legislation co-sponsored by Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi that would strengthen the American economy by reducing the wait time for those most impacted by the decades-long backlog for green cards.

The Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act, H.R. 1044, eliminates the per-country limits on employment-based visas and establishes a fairer system through a “first come, first served” policy while increasing the per-country limit on family-based visas from 7 percent to 15 percent.

“As an original cosponsor, I’m glad to see that both parties came together to resoundingly pass the Fairness For High-Skilled Immigrants Act, legislation that will strengthen business development and economic expansion in America” said Rep Raja Krishnamoorthi.

“By leveling the playing field for high-skilled applicants regardless of their country of birth, this legislation will keep families together while helping American companies retain top talent.”
