End The Backlog For Green Cards

To End The Backlog For Green Cards, Raja Krishnamoorthi Has Submitted a New Immigration Bill

To End The Backlog For Green Cards, Illinois Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi has introduced a new immigration bill addressing the long-standing green card backlog. The “Eliminating Green Card Backlogs for Legal Employment (EGBLE) Act” seeks to clear the backlog. The act seeks to increase the number of green cards available each year. As a result, it will eliminate per-country caps, and recapture unused green cards from previous years.

According to Krishnamoorthi, the current backlog affecting millions of immigrants is causing significant harm to families, businesses, and the economy. He believes that the EGBLE Act will help to modernize and streamline the legal immigration system, ensuring that it is fair and efficient for all.

The EGBLE Act has received support from various organizations.  For instance, the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the National Immigration Forum are strongly in support. However, whether the bill will gain enough support in Congress to become law remains to be seen.

Also, Krishnamoorthi has stated that he is committed to working with his colleagues on both sides of the aisle. He believes that it will help advance the EGBLE Act and address the end of the Backlog For Green Cards.  Note that the immigration system has long been a contentious issue in U.S. politics. And even now, it remains to be seen whether the EGBLE Act will overcome the political obstacles and become law.
