This is the first time it's cleared House of Representatives. What are the chances of clearing Senate? How quick is that process?

Wanted to chat sincerely with people on that. No trolls or haters please.

    Absolutely no chance it will pass. HR1044 is an immigration voice gimmick to extract donations from gullible immigrants. Rand Paul has already come up with a proposal to increase GCs in the senate so he will block it for sure. Another decade wasted by desis in endless convincing of reps and senators.

    I think it passing in the senate is tough because even one senator can put it on hold forever. So there’s no point discussing about it. The only best thing to hope is for the President to create a merit based system.

      How can one senator block it? Isn't it based on majority vote?

    This article talks about exactly that - https://www.am22tech.com/fairness-for-high-skilled-workers-act/

    From the article -
    "House has passed HR1044 on June 2019 to remove the green card country limits but the Senate’s version is still blocked by Rand Paul at this time.

    Bloomberg reports that Paul blocked as he wants an amendment to include Nurses in the bill as they stand to get a waiting period of 8+ years if this bill is passed."

      Read the full article, it goes on to say it's likely just political posturing and he likely doesn't actually care about nurses.

      Can people from Pennsylvania call him? I have heard that that's an effective way even in today's world.

      I have no idea. If you can't vote he probably doesn't care about you.

      He blocked it because of the other bill that he himself is proposing.

      Lol! Nurses it seems.. truly hilarious to see the extent to which racist xenophobes will go to. "Fuck legal immigrants .. fuck everyone who isn't born to a white nationalist ancestor"

      Name calling an entire group as evil, coward and goons and expect not to be flagged?

      Google HR3012. It was passed in 2011 and still on hold in Senate 😅

    Why is every anti 1044 post getting flagged? I have real concerns about the backlog being mostly consultants. That's not racism, that is a legit concern.

      While talking to the senator make sure to dive deep into the actual problems -

      1. Why aren't the consultancy companies being persecuted for bringing low quality workers? Why were the American companies who outsourced this are not persecuted too?

      2. If US gives out more visas than green cards per year, what is the government's strategy for the excess number of people? Is there a study/committee on how their lives are getting affected?

      3. Why is there no merit based immigration? Why does someone wanting to be in US require to win a lottery to get H1B? That's the exact opposite of merit based.

      4. Why was the current backlog allowed to grow so big that now it will take years to drain it? Which department/agency is responsible for it?

    • Amazon hi!!
      Those are great questions and I hope we can get a bill that resolves them. Hr1044/s386 makes things even worse though.

    The chances are roughly zero as long as McConnell is in charge. He unilaterally decides whether or not a bill goes up for a vote.
