Holiday Reading

Rate this Entry

CIR ASAP (HR 4321) has been published. I have uploaded a copy of it to my docstoc page. Please feel free to download, share, print out, or otherwise distribute. At 640+ pages, it is lengthy.

The Library of Congress' Thomas database has a hyperlinked version that is better to use if you're just trying to focus on any one section. The important sections for Healthcare immigration are Chapter I, Title III.

Sec. 301 - Recaptures past unused visa numbers
Sec. 302 - Exempts LPR dependents from the IV quotas.
Sec. 303 - Slightly increases the per country quotas.
Sec. 320 - Provides IV cap exemptions for certain STEM and shortage occupations
Sec. 321 - Allows those with pending IVs to file Adjustment of Status even if their priority date is not current.

Happy Holiday reading!

    Hi Chris.

    I have a question, regarding this statement:
    "Sec. 321 - Allows those with pending IVs to file Adjustment of Status even if their priority date is not current."

    what do you mean by IVs? as in my case, will i be able to file Adjustment of Status with my approved EB-3 I-140 even if my PD is not current?

    That's it! Your approved I-140 will allow you to file the I-485.

    Grateful for the quick reply Chris.

    How soon then can I file for the I-485?

    Thanks again.

    @ Caroline- The law hasn't been passed, just proposed. If it goes through as drafted you will be able to file the I-485 upon the new law's effective date.
