By Bill at January 23, 2018 22:55
Filed Under: Immigration News

On January 10, four Republican House leaders introduced the Securing America's Future Act, which is supported by the Republicans across the board. President Trump praised and endorsed the bill within hours.

The new legislation includes border security, end to chain migration, DACA fix, increase of employment green card and a new guest worker program. Following are some key points. Please click here to read the one page summary.

  • Increases Immigration Levels for Skilled Workers - Increases the number of green cards available in the three skilled worker green card categories from about 120,000 a year to about 175,000 - an increase of 45%
  • Agricultural Workers - The new H2C visa would bring in 450,000 guest workers every year and allow them stay in the country for up to three years.
  • Ends the Diversity Program - Eliminates the visa lottery green card program
  • Ends Chain Migration - Eliminates green card programs for relatives (other than spouses and minor children); creates a renewable temporary visa for parents of citizens to unite families at no cost to taxpayers
  • Makes E-Verify Mandatory - Employers must check to see that they are only hiring legal workers

This Republican version of Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill will accomplish the White House's Immigration Principles & Policies, which was released in last October.

White House Proposed Skills-based Immigration System

By Bill at October 20, 2017 02:14
Filed Under: Immigration News

On Oct. 8, 2017, the White House released the promised Immigration Principles & Policies which outline the Trump Administration's position on immigration. This document is broken into three parts: 1) Border Security, 2) Interior Enforcement, and 3) Merit-Based Immigration. read full document

"The current immigration system prioritizes extended family based chain migration over skills-based immigration and does not serve the national interest. Decades of low-skilled immigration has suppressed wages, fueled unemployment and strained federal resources."

Therefore, the Administration proposed establishing a merit-based immigration system that protects U.S. workers and taxpayers, and ending chain migration, to promote financial success and assimilation for newcomers.

  1. Limit extended-family chain migration and replace it with a merit-based system that prioritizes skills and economic contributions.
  2. Establish a skills-based, points-based system for green cards;
  3. Eliminate the "Diversity Visa Lottery".
  4. Limit the number of refugees, prevent abuse of the Refugee Admissions Program.

Bill seeking exemption of visa limits for foreigners with US PhD introduced

By Bill at June 02, 2017 21:30
Filed Under: Immigration News

Congressman Erik Paulsen(Republican) and Mike Quigley(Democratic) introduced the bipartisan Stopping Trained in America Ph.Ds from Leaving the Economy (STAPLE) Act on May 25, 2017. 


The bill would exempt foreign-born individuals who have earned an American Ph.D. in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) from the limits on the number of employment-based green cards and H-1B visas awarded annually.

Congressman Paulsen said, "With thousands of high-skilled jobs going unfilled, the STAPLE Act makes sure American companies are getting the talent they need. By stapling a green card or visa to their diplomas, these professionals can invent and innovate new discoveries that grow our economy."

The same bill was introduced in the House before. During Obama Administration, chance for enactment of such legislation was slim, but during the current Republican government and Congress, the odd is much higher.

Paulsen, Quigley Reintroduce Bipartisan Immigration Bill Encouraging American Innovation

By Bill at June 02, 2017 20:55
Filed Under: Immigration News

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Erik Paulsen (MN-03) and Congressman Mike Quigley (IL-05) introduced the bipartisan Stopping Trained in America Ph.D.s from Leaving the Economy (STAPLE) Act, which would exempt foreign-born individuals who have earned an American Ph.D. in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) from the limits on the number of employment-based green cards and H-1B visas awarded annually.

“It is no surprise that the brightest minds from around the world come to the United States to pursue their advanced degrees, and we should be doing all we can to ensure students we educate and train here use what they’ve learned to contribute to the American economy,” said Congressman Paulsen. “With thousands of high-skilled jobs going unfilled, the STAPLE Act makes sure American companies are getting the talent they need. By stapling a green card or visa to their diplomas, these professionals can invent and innovate new discoveries that grow our economy.”  

“If we are serious about fostering innovation, spurring economic activity, and staying competitive in the global marketplace, we must encourage the brightest minds in the world to study, work, and stay in our communities,” said Congressman Quigley. “We cannot advance our technology or research if we continue sending foreign-born, but U.S. educated, students with advanced degrees away. I am proud to join Rep. Paulsen in re-introducing the STAPLE Act, which invests in our future by supporting STEM educated professionals that want to contribute to our economy and society.”

H-1B visas, also known as high-skilled visas, are subject to annual caps that are woefully short of the number necessary to fill high-skilled jobs. Since April 1 when the U.S. began accepting H-1B petitions, the U.S. has received 233,000 applications for these high-skilled visas. Only 65,000 will be available this year, meaning that applicants will be subject to a lottery where two-out-of-three applicants will be denied a visa.

Numerous studies have found that H-1B visas correspond with an increase in jobs for native citizens. For example, a 2011 American Enterprise Institute study found that “an additional 100 foreign-born workers in STEM fields with advanced degrees from U.S. universities is associated with an additional 262 jobs among U.S. natives.”

Congressman Paulsen, a champion of small business and advocate of free enterprise, entrepreneurship, and innovation, serves on the House Ways and Means Committee, the bicameral Joint Economic Committee, and is co-chair of the Congressional Medical Technology Caucus.
