US Congress to vote Green Card bill, Indian H-1B visa holders to benefit

American lawmakers will decide today on lifting the country-cap on issuing Green Cards through voting in Congress. The move may benefit thousands of highly-skilled Indian IT professionals. Most Indian IT professionals are highly skilled and go to the US mainly on the H-1B work visas.

They are the worst sufferers of the current immigration system which imposes a seven per cent per country quota on allotment of permanent legal residency. With bipartisan support, the ‘Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act’ is expected to clear in the US House of Representatives.

According to the Congressional Research Service (CRS), this bill increases the per-country cap on family-based immigrant visas from seven per cent of the total number of such visas available that year to 15 per cent.
