Bill for lifting green card cap stopped in Senate

Posted on January 31st, 2012 No Comments

A bill that would lift the cap on green cards for high-tech, skilled, foreign workers was approved 389-15 by the House, but has been stopped in the Senate.

The bill is aimed not to allow more people into the country, but to lift the cap of green cards awarded to applicants from certain countries. Advocates for the bill argue that immigrants from large countries are at a significant disadvantage, specifically skilled workers from China and India.

The bill would also not necessarily take jobs from Americans. Before an employer can file for an immigrant worker’s green card, the company has to prove it cannot find American workers with the same skill level, which is usually at least a bachelor’s degree.
