The Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act


Immigration Voice announces support from a record number of bipartisan legislators for the introduction of legislation seeking for fair treatment for high-skilled immigrants on Green Card waiting times.

Washington, DC, February 07, 2019 --(PR.com)-- Immigration Voice, a national non-profit organization with over 130,000 members that advocates for the alleviation of restrictions on employment, travel, and working conditions faced by legal high-skilled immigrants in the United States working as doctors, researchers, scientists, and engineers at many of America's Fortune 500 companies is proud to announce the bipartisan introduction of the Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act of 2019 in the House and the Senate.

This bill is the first bipartisan immigration bill that members of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees have introduced this year. "The Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act creates a fair and equitable, “first come, first serve” system for receiving employment-based green cards, putting an end to the discriminatory quota system that has left over 1 million Indian high-skilled workers in the United States with a decades-long line while individuals from other countries face no wait time at all to receive a green card," said Pratik Dakwala, the Co-Founder of Immigration Voice.

The lead sponsors of this bill in the House are the Chairwoman and the Ranking Member of the House Immigration Subcommittee - Rep. Zoe Lofgren and Rep. Ken Buck. The lead sponsors of the bill in the Senate are Judiciary Committee Members - Senator Mike Lee and Senator Kamala Harris.

In the last Congress, the bill had over 330 bipartisan cosponsors in the House and over 20 Senators and a strong majority of members in both the Republican Conference and the Democratic Caucus, and is one of the most bipartisan bills in the entire Congress.

Aman Kapoor, the Co-Founder and President of Immigration Voice stated that: “The Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act is a win-win for the American people. It would help to grow our economy by allowing highly skilled immigrants to start their own companies and hire American workers. And, it will finally remove the last vestiges of discrimination from our high-skilled immigration system. We are incredibly grateful to Senators Lee and Harris and Representatives Lofgren and Buck for their leadership and are confident that this will be the year the bill will pass.”
