TRACKING THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE

Rate this Entry

by Chris Musillo


The Senate Judiciary Committee has begun the arduous amendment process. More than 300 amendments have been filed by the Senate Judiciary Committee membership, many by Republicans looking to stop CIR.  The SJC is composed of far less than half of the Senate membership as a whole.  The SJC deliberations are expected to last for about two weeks.  After which, the SJC will take a vote.  

Although some members of the SJC are trying to torpedo the CIR bill, it is still expected to pass the SJC.  From there the Senate as a whole will act on the bill, where it is also expected to pass.  It remains to be seen by how much the bill passes the full Senate.   The greater the margin of passage, the better the likelihood of House action.  A lot hinges on the next several weeks.

MU Law will be in Washington DC next week meeting with Senate and House members' staffs educating them further on employment-based immigration issues, especially for the healthcare community.  We received a lot of positive feedback from our last trip in March.

    Chris,
    Currently, there is no amendments to support nurses immigration other than visa capture/ per country quota elimination, isn't it?

    Chris, will the registered nurses eligible for H1B visa when they increase the quotas?

    @William - no. RNs will not be eligible for the H-1B. However they should be eligible for the W visa, which is a new non-immigrant visa proposed in CIR.

    @Sagar - We are working on some amendments for nurse immigration. Whether we can get them introduced, acted on, and passed, is always an open question. I am going to DC for this very reason...
