  • Apr 17 - Section By Section Summary Of Senate Immigration Bill

    Comment: Section By Section Summary Of Senate Immigration Bill
    Greg Siskind writes "This is my summary of the legal immigration section of Title II. The legalization and AgJobs sections are not done yet. This is the section dealing mainly with green cards. A few surprises -

    • Per country quotas are abolished after all
    • Some nice new language on the reentry bars
    • The welcome replacement of the green card lottery with the points system
    • Rollover of unused visas from year to year
    • The return of a much more generous V visa for family members
    • Raising the age to 18 for adoptions and 21 for stepchildren
    Anyway, I'm turning next to the non-immigrant visas. Enjoy." See the summary below.
