Default House Considers Green Card Recapture Bill

House Immigration Subcommittee Chair Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) and Former House Judiciary Committee Chair James Sensenbrenner (R-WI) have co-sponsored HR 5882, a bill that would recapture wasted green cards for the past 15 years. The bill also provides for the automatic recapturing of unused numbers in the future. The bill is a great first start to dealing with the inadequate number of green cards for skilled and professional workers in the US. The fact that James Sensenbrenner, long associated with restrictionist immigration bills, is a co-sponsor is an indication the bill has broad support.

If HR 5921 (Country Quota elimination) and HR 5882 (Visa # recapture) through....It would be good to many (almost all) of our IV members/GC aspirants.

house needs to pass it, then give it to senate. It needs to pass there also (last year the Comprehensive Immigration Reform started in Senate and died right there). If whats passed in senate is not exactly same as what was passed in the house (ie. they add/delete stuff as its debated) then it goes to a committee where they reconcile everything. Once that is ok, it goes to the president for voting. the president can sign it or veto it and ask for changes. For something like this he will typically sign. So its upto the house and the senate... we are in the very first stage right now and there is a long way to go....

And in my opinion, due to great lobbying by IV and other proponents, these Bills are being considered in the House..at least introduced. While I think it is very very difficult for these to see any traction atall (This is an election yr - c'mon), it will serve as a great eyeopener and awareness campaign for the law makers, and will bear fruit once teh election dust settles. The only issue then is that we will again by tagged together with the Undocumented Folks...so there a catch 22.

Well, if this get's Bush's autograph on it, we will see significant forward movements (possibly current) in the visa bulletins starting only in October this year (The effective date of enactment for this bill).
