It will be increased to 15% of the number of visas available in a certain year as per the Bill H.R.1044. The name of this bill is Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act . As far as the employment-based immigration visas are concerned, the limit of 7% would be removed. Every year, 1,40,000 employment based green cards are issued and a country can’t get more than 9,800 of such visas.Since remove conditions on green card visas in the employment-based category, people would have to wait for a less time for these visas.

The Republicans are against this bill because after passing it, more Indians will get the green cards. This would also reduce the period for a green card for the Indians who have to wait for more than 10 years to get this visa. After the passing of this bill, Indians who only get 25% of the green card visas provided so far, will be able to get 90% of such visas issued. This bill is easily going to get a winning majority in the House of Representatives because Democrats have larger seats there. The Bill has 311 supporters in this house and will be cleared here. Out of these 311 supporters, there are 203 Democrats and 108 Republicans.

However, in Senate, where the Republicans have a high majority, getting consent for this bill would be tough. The bill will also make changes in the number of visas allotted for the EB2, EB3 and EB5 visas. These visas will be allotted as per a specific percentage for certain countries. However, not all the visa numbers will be reserved and the 85% will be given to immigrants of a single nation.
Till this bill gets passed, Canada’s immigration should be more favored. It’s a fact that the immigration website of Canada saw so many applicants on the day Trump became the President of the US.

This is a good statistic and only 4% of the working-age population in Canada has longer working hours.
