#usimmigration #usimmigrationnews #greencard #eagleact #usvisa
A bipartisan legislation has been introduced in the US House of Representatives to eliminate the per country cap on employment-based Green Card
For the layman, it is an Act that will allow Equal Access to Green Cards for Legal Employment. This will also aim to eliminate the 7% per-country limit on employment-based immigrant visas, that has been a huge bottle-neck for skilled talent entering the U.S.
EAGLE is the acronym for Equal Access to Green Cards for Legal Employment. The intent of the Act is to “de-emphasizes birthplace” and give permanent residency to eligible immigrant visa holders who have entered the U.S. based on employment. This means immigrants should be hired based on their skill sets and not place of origin.
It will also eliminate the 7% country cap limit on visa applications.
For family-based green cards, the EAGLE Act proposes raising per-country cap to 15%.
This proposal if passed will be effective by Oct 1, 2022. It will potentially eliminate the EB-1, EB-2 and EB-3 backlogs in 3-17 years if the Act is passed in its entirety.
