A new US Law – H.R 392 will assist Indian skilled immigrants to jump the queue for Green Cards. This latest amendment to US immigration rules is likely to become a law soon. It will crucially alter the immigration landscape of the US based on employment. This will have major consequences for immigrants from all nations.
The new US Law is mainly bankrolled by the Indo-American community, chiefly the Immigration Voice a nonprofit. The support is led by tech firms such as Microsoft, Hewlett Packard, Alphabet, and Amazon. Cognizant Technology Solutions is also a chief supporter of the law. This is not surprising as it bagged the highest number of H-1B Visas amongst all the firms in FY 2017.
Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act is more popular as H.R. 392. It intends to end the per nation numerical ceiling for immigration based on employment. As of now, each nation regardless of its population has a ceiling of 7% (9,800) for the yearly 140,000 Green Cards offered.
The new US Law aims to alter the Immigration and Nationality Act eliminating the limitations related to place of birth. It will, therefore, turn out to be a blessing exclusively for employment-based Indian immigrants, as quoted by the Foreign Policy.
The US Citizenship and Immigration Services has published the data for FY 2018 H-1B Visa applications. It elaborates that 73.7% or 309, 986 of the overall 419, 637 applications belonged to Indian nationals. H-1B Program permits US employers to provisionally employ overseas workers in specialty jobs.
The employment-based immigrants from China to the US constitute 11.2% or 47, 172 of the total applications. Together, India and China account for the irresistible majority of the total H-1B Visa applications.
