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 by increasing the number of green cards available each year, eliminating per-country caps, and recapturing 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, including the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the National Immigration Forum. However, whether the bill will gain enough support in Congress to become law remains to be seen.
Krishnamoorthi has stated that he is committed to working with his colleagues on both sides of the aisle to advance the EGBLE Act and address the green card backlog. The immigration system has long been a contentious issue in U.S. politics, and it remains to be seen whether the EGBLE Act will overcome the political obstacles and become law.
