Lofgren-Sensenbrenner bill to recpature GCs; Sched A to come next?

Rate this Entry

On Wednesday Reps. Lofgren, Davis, and Sensenbrenner introduced H.R. 5882, to "recapture" employment-based (EB) green cards that Congress authorized in the past but that went unused before the end of past fiscal years due to government processing delays. Pundits estimate that approximately 218,000 unused EB green cards will be brought back into supply for all employment-based workers.



Significantly, HR 5882 has bipartisan support and has two "heavy hitters" (Lofgren and Sensenbrenner) leading the charge. Unlike past immigration proposals, this one has a real chance at passing.



The long anticipated legislation targeted at Schedule A occupations -- PTs and RNs -- should be introduced next week. We'll have more information once the bill is formally introduced.
