What do you guys think about HR1044..it's aiming to remove country based green card backlog that should benefit indians and chinese folks.
If passed, the number of green cards issued will be restricted as:
Fiscal year 2020 will have at-least 15% of Green Cards for non Indian and Chinese people.
Fiscal year 2021 will have at-least 10% of Green Cards for non Indian and Chinese people.
Fiscal year 2022 will have at-least 10% of Green Cards for non Indian and Chinese people.
Per country RESERVED Green card limit will be set to 25% of total GCs.
Per country UN-RESERVED Green card limit will be set to 85% for fiscal years 2020, 2021, 2022. Starting 2023, there will be no restrictions.
“Do no Harm” clause in HR 1044 – Anyone with an approved I-140 is guaranteed to receive Green card earlier than the person without approved I-140 at this time.
The Transition period (including the “Do no harm” provision) now applies to EB-5 Visas also.
The real solution to this problem is a country cap on H1B.
