Pass with a majority the - H.R.213 - To amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to eliminate the per-country numerical limitation for employment-based immigrants, to increase the per-country numerical limitation for family-sponsored immigrants, and

The current immigration regulations/law has a numerical limitation for employment-based and family-based immigration petition which allocates a maximum number of immigrant visas for each category and per the country of chargeability. This is unfair as there are certain countries from which the number of immigrant petitions are far less compared to certain others, which in turn has created long wait times, sometimes in excess of 10 years. The congress and The President need to amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to eliminate the per-country numerical limitation for employment-based immigrants, to increase the per-country numerical limitation for family-sponsored immigrants, and for other purposes.



This will not only improve the family reunions but also bring it talent to the US that will become the growth engine for the nations economy. It will also enable a lot of these people waiting for the immigrant visa to become available, be able to start new businesses and hence create jobs that have been scarce for the past few year for both the highly skilled and low skilled residents and citizens of the United States.



We urge the members of the Congress and the President, to vote and sign this bill respectively in to a law without letting any more time being wasted. Please don't let bill die in the committees just because there is a wide disagreement between the Republicans and Democrats regarding the handling of the undocumented immigrants as the legal immigrants have been patiently waiting for many years all the time paying federal, state, local, medicare and social security taxes which potentially add up to several thousand dollars every year.



Please Vote a YAY on this bill and sign it in to a law.
