2. It allows current H1B's who would have qualified for the F4 category and who have worked for 3 years in their field to self petition and adjust status to PR, regardless of visa number availability (they are exempt from quota)
3. Would make it easier for STEM students to obtain a visa.
4. Perhaps very importantly, is the only clause which would allow a high skill worker to self petition for GC
browse section 507 of CIR for the other provisions.

The cornyn amendment would strike the entire section containing this provisions, clauses which would no doubt benefit several IV members.

It does not take away the
1. Right to apply for adjustment of status without visa dates current for people with MS/PhD + 3 years exp. Also, these people are not counted against quota.

2. It removes self-petition rights for everyone.

If thats the case, as you agree the Brownback amendment is better, would it not make sense to push that amendment as opposed to SA 4005? SA 4005 would give some benefits but take away a lot. Brownback's amendment would be beneficial for everyone.

any information when the ammendment will be debated? It seems the undocumented alien related bills are taking most of the floor time.

Do not let us know the answer in this forum if this is a sensitive information.

IV represents employment based immigrants from all over the world. That would be selfish to ask for specific amendment to India.

If they don't pass any amendments beneficial to us do we still benefit from CIR bill as it is? Can anyone please provide the answer?

Thanks

No. If the Cornyn amendment only changed section 508, no one would have a problem with it. However SA 4005 harms us by removing section 507 and the numerous beneficial clauses contained in it.

But Section 507 is only for student visa. Why do you care much about it ?
