Default New!!!! Employment based visa bill introduced!!!!

Bill Text - 111th Congress (2009-2010) - THOMAS (Library of Congress)


Synopsis from Matthew Oh website:

Quote:
07/10/2010: Employment-Based Piecemeal Employment-Based Immigration Reform Bill Introduced in the House on 07/01/2010

* Rep. John Shadegg of Arizona introduced 'SKILL Act of 2010' H.R.5658 in the House on July 1, 2010. This is a piecemeal immigration reform legislative bill from the Republican legislator in Arizona focusing solely on the employment-based immigration reform. The following list of the titles and sections of the proposed legislation speaks for itself. Under the circumstances of practical total failure of the Congress in enacting comprehensive immigration reform bill, this bill appears to propose reform of employment-based immigration system first. This bill has a slight chance to make it as a stand alone legislation under the current political landscape in mid-term national election year, but since the Congress is not likely to pass FY-2011 federal government appropriation legislation before the end of FY 2010, this type of bill is likely to attempt to be attached to a chain of federal departmental appropriation bills after the national election. As one can easily tell it, this bill is strongly supported by the businesses and the foreign worker immigrant community.
* The titles and sections of the bill are as follows:
o SECTION 1. Short Title: Table of Contents
Sec. 1. Short title; table of contents.
TITLE I--Access to High Skilled Foreign Workers
o SEC. 101. H-1B Visa Holders
SEC. 102. Marked-Based Visa Limits
TITLE II--Retaining Foreign Workers Educated in the United States
o SEC. 201. U.S. Educated Immigrants
SEC. 202. Immigrant Visa Backlog Reduction
SEC. 203. Student Visa Reform
SEC. 204. L-1 Visa Holders Subject to Visa Backlog
SEC. 205. Retaining Workers Subject to Green Card Backlog
TITLE III--Business Facilitation Through Immigration Reform
o SEC. 301. Streamlining the Adjudication Process for Established Employers
SEC. 302. Providing Premium Processing of Employment-Based Visa Petitions
SEC. 303. Elimination Procedural Delays in Labor Certification Process
TITLE IV--Miscellaneous
o SEC. 401. Completion of Background and Security Checks
SEC. 402. Visa RevalidationI
SEC. 403. Severability
SEC. 404. Constitutiional Authority
* One may call this bill as a foreign-worker Dream Act! Please read the full text.

Default Seems like political drama

I think Republican want to show american people that they do support immigration but should be legal. He is retiring in 2010. No one will support him knowing he is going out. There is not much political return for supporting this bill..... It would be good if McCain or some higer rank politician introduce such bill.

1 co-sponsor in 10 days, that too some unknown Congressman from Hawaii. Its not just important whats in the bill, for bill to go anywhere, what is more important is who is sponsoring & co-sponsoring the bill. This bill is clearly political posturing and has no future.

gc_on_demand said that John Shadegg is retiring in 2010. This bill do not have the weight to go anywhere unless it gets more co-sponsors. The context of the bill is designed to get more people into US and making them wait for green card. It looks like some immigration lawyer wrote this bill?

Looks more like a election year drama.. Though Shadegg announced he will not run for reelection in 2010. Just one co-sponsor !!!! and he running for a re-election @ Nov.
Bill Summary & Status - 111th Congress (2009 - 2010) - H.R.5658 - All Congressional Actions - THOMAS (Library of Congress)

All the talks/speech about for or against the Immigration Reform including the President is just to strengthen the political capital they might already have and does not represent the real commitment to address the broken immigration system. Politics @ its best !!!

The problem with immigration reforms is both parties do not want to take ownership of the issue and address it and take credit or let the other party take ownership either. When it comes to immigration reform, it is always the change we can't believe in and this applies to the Obama as well.

all these bills do not solve our problems. There are only two ways
---After 6th year h1 completes,,, pack the bags and go back
---Wait until you get your green cards (no matter how many years it will take)

Live life peacefully.

But in reality, you cant live life peacefully

Default Diwali

People, most of us have celebrated diwali, India, in one way shape or form and most of us must have burst crackers during diwali celebrations.
Sometimes, out of a bagful of fireworks, a few don't go off **BOOM**, as expected, but go ***FOOOOSSSS***

Well, these bills are like that, just the percentage of ***FOOOOSS** is almost 100%..instead of about 1% for our crackers...
