What Changes Might an Immigration Bill Bring?

Immigration is currently a very hot topic is Washington. Now a new round of debate is beginning with the introduction of an immigration bill in the U.S. Senate. At 844 pages, the bill contains many reforms and new measures. Here are some of the major reforms the bill proposes:

  • Fast track to citizenship for Dreamers — People who arrived in the U.S. before they were 16, graduated from high school and served in the military or attended at least two years of college would to eligible to become citizens. After five years, Dreamers could apply for a green card and then citizenship.
  • Path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants — People who entered or stayed in the U.S. illegally would be eligible for a 13-year path to citizenship.
  • Elimination of visa cap for Ph.D.’s — Immigrations who hold a Ph.D. would be exempt from any limits on the number of employment-based green cards offered.
  • Introduction of merit system — A merit-based system would award 120,000 green cards a year based on factors like education and job skills.
  • New border security measures — Strict standards would be set for tightening security at entry points.
  • Reduction of family members eligible for green cards — Siblings of U.S. citizens could no longer apply for permanent residency.

These are just a few of the changes proposed in the Senate immigration bill. The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to introduce its own set of proposals shortly.
