HOUSE PASSES HR 3012

Rate this Entry

by Chris Musillo


On Tuesday, November 29, the House of Representatives passed HR. 3012, the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act by a vote of 389-15. The Senate must now consider the bill. If the Senate passes HR 3012, President Obama is expected to sign the HR 3012 into law.


The measure, if passed into law, would eliminate the per country numerical limitation for employment-based immigrants. The Immigration and Nationality Act generally provides that the total number of employment-based immigrant visas made available to natives of any foreign country in a year cannot exceed 7% of the total number of such visas made available in that year. The bill eliminates this per country percentage cap in a phased in process between 2012 and 2015.
