To amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to eliminate the per country level for employment-based immigrants and to end the spill-over of unused immigrant visa numbers between employment-based and family-sponsored categories.
The second part of this bill will not help us unless there is an increase in employment-based immigrant visa numbers as the bill seeks to end the spill-over of visa numbers between employment-based and family-based categories.
