Three High-Skilled Visa Bills Introduced into the House - ImmigrationMD

Posted by Ann Badmus | Mar 20, 2008 | 0 Comments

On March 14, three bills were introduced into the House of Representatives relating to high-skilled visas.

  • Rep. Smith (R-TX) introduced H.R. 5642 which would increase the numerical limitation with respect to H-1B non-immigrants for fiscal years 2008 and 2009.
  • Rep. Kennedy (D-RI) introduced H.R. 5634 which would exempt from numerical limitations any alien who has received a Ph.D. from an institution of higher education within the 3-year period preceding such alien's petition for special immigrant status.
  • Rep. Giffords (D-AZ) introduced H.R. 5630 which would modify certain requirements with respect to H-1B non-immigrants.

In light of the pending H-1B visa lottery, these bills are critical to employers who hire foreign born professional workers. Contact your congressional representatives now in support of these measures.
