Senator Proposes Revisions to Fairness for Highly Skilled Immigrants Act

22 Jun 2012

An employment-based visa reform bill, introduced in September 2011 by Representative Chaffetz (R-UT), is now again being revised. The bill, in its original state, proposed to eliminate the employment-based per-country cap for immigrant visas entirely by Fiscal Year 2015 and raise the family-sponsored per-country cap from 7% to 15%. In November 2011, with minor changes, the bill was approved by the House of Representatives.

Earlier this month, as part of ongoing negotiations between tip senators working to push the bill into law, Senator Grassley (R-IA) proposed new H-1B enforcement language that, if accepted, would enable him to remove his objections to the bill and help it get a Senate vote. The Iowa Senator’s proposed changes would strengthen securities for Americans seeking highly skilled positions.

This proposed legislation continues to be debated in the Senate, with compromises now being considered.
