Default New Immigration Bill

I recently heard that the new immigration bill is finally going to be passed in Oct 2010. The highlights would be mainly to use all the green cards alloted irrespective of any country. And to support this bill they will receive all the 485 applications irrespective of the PD. Can anyone confirm if this is accurate info.

Thanks.

It will be better if you could mention your sources. Otherwise, it is just speculation and wishful thinking.

"Some people already know about this bill introduced on July 1 by John Shadegg (AZ)
H.R. 5658 : To amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to increase competitiveness in the United States, and for other purposes.
Link: H.R.5658: SKIL Act of 2010 - U.S. Congress - OpenCongress
go to the link and click and write to you local representative to consponsor and suppor this bill and pass this bill.
If congress passes this bill it would increase the available EB visa numbers and will make life easy for lots of indian and chinese citizens.
Good Luck
And thanks"

If this bill becomes a law, all retrogression will end. All provisions favorable to us, are there in the bill.
1. Increase of Immigrant visa to 290,000.
2. Master's degree from US in STEM field not counted in any quota.
3. Master's degree from a foreign country and three years of US experience not counted in any quota.
4. Family counted as one.
5. Recapture of visas from previous years

Why would IV not support a bill like this? Wouldn't this not make all our current problems go away?

Oh you are talking about that 5658 one.. It's already been discussed in these forums. Someone pointed out that this was crafted by a senator who is about to retire, and has a co-sponsor from Hawaii. So it doesn't appear to be very strong and would most probably just die silently

IV team - This is a good chance and worthy one to lobby for. Any updates/leadership on this would be appreciated.

Why can't democrats come up with a bill like this, good for EB immigration? And what would be a reason for Democrats to vote out this bill?

Whatever may be the chances of success, at least we should support this bill.

It will definitely have an impact, but surprisingly very few persons are interested in pursuing this.

Pappu: Can we do anything about it? It does seem to be a good bill.
If voting on the website really has any impact, why can't we do it?
