Default HR3012 - positive developments

Definitely a positive development.
"http://www.irishcentral.com/news/New-move-means-Irish-E3-visa-bill-now-likely-to-pass-senate-138470709.html"

"The prospects of passage for an E-3 visa bill allowing up to 10,000 Irish a year to come and work permanently in the U.S. have increased dramatically this week.

On Tuesday New York Senator Charles Schumer hotlined the bill in the Senate, meaning that he is seeking unanimous consent for its passage.

The bill, known informally as the Schumer/Leahy/Durbin bill, is attached to other legislation which would allow more skilled hi-tech workers from China, India and Mexico into the U.S.

In its original form, without the Irish component, the hi-tech bill passed the House 319-14, with Silicon Valley companies in particular playing a major lobbying role.

However, when that bill came to the Senate, Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa placed a hold on it. The Irish lobby then became involved, demanding an Irish E-3 bill.

Reacting to that, Schumer introduced the Irish amendment which would allow the E-3 visas.
......................
Morrison rated chances for passage of the current bill as “better than 50/50,” but stated chances were “very good” for an overall or revised bill at some point.
.......................
Schumer is the lead sponsor, along with Senators Leahy and Durbin, of S.1983. “This bill presents the rarest of opportunities to work together to pass a historic bill that will both open up, for the first time in decades, an avenue for legal Irish immigration to America and allow us to attract the kind of innovators who can create job growth in America."

If it does get passed in the Senate then it goes back to the House for approval, but having almost unanimously passed there already, there is no expectation that it will be blocked.

“We have a golden opportunity,” said Ciaran Staunton, president of the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform, which has led the charge.

I lived and worked in Ireland. Total irish population was 3M when I left(2002). 10K visa every year means in 25 years the country will be here? Are they serious about it?

I am not excited about linking HR 3012 with Irish E3 bill. HR 3012 passed with overwhelming majority in the house and enjoyed tremendous bipartisan support. Something unprecedented at a time when the two parties could not agree on any thing. Now every one wants to piggy back this bill. We want to remove per country caps, how can they link this bill to something that asks for visas based on country of origin? I hope HR 3012 passes the senate by it self.

Senator Charles Schumer D- New York moved to expedite the bill on Wednesday and had 53 Democratic co-sponsors.
......
It is believed up to eight Republicans will sign on led by Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts, which would give the bill a filibuster-proof majority in the senate.

If the undocumented one pushed by Schumer is amended to HR-3012 then it would have difficulty in House. If it is Senator Scott Brown's Irish bill which does not include undocumented then it should sail through House.

I guess what is being attempted here is to include an amendment (new irish visas) to 3012. The main point is that the amendment being sought to be included is "completely unrelated" to the orignal bill. Doesn't that allow the bill proponents some power to reject the amendment on a friendly note, while potentially agreeing to consider the irish agenda seperately? 3012 does not raise immigration numbers while irish amendment does so I have a strong feeling that these will be kept seperate. Having said that, it is also possible that the supporters of irish agenda(mostly democrats) can simply refuse to support 3012 during a cloture vote (but not a strong possibility since they have already voiced support for 3012 + the unrelated amendment and also the fact that 3012 falls into the presidents agenda). Nobody can be sure and all we can do is guestimate now about the potential outcomes but try to remain positive and we might actually pull through successfully despite all these obstacles

I think you need to go back to elementary with your kids.

25 years = 300 months (each year has 12 months not 10)

300 x 10K = 3M

Dear Einstein,

You too can use elementary education in reading...

Read the post again it is 10K per year and not per month!

I am sure you do not think before posting. Think twice, do your homework and then post.
