Raise act

Does anyone know about this bill in congress? Most family visa petitions would be eliminated.

Prioritize Immediate Family Households. The RAISE Act would retain immigration preferences for the spouses and minor children of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents.

Eliminated would be green card categories for foreign citizens who are:

  • Adult parents of U.S. citizens
  • Adult brothers and sisters of U.S. citizens
  • Unmarried adult sons & daughters of U.S. citizens 
  • Married adult sons & daughters of U.S. citizens 
  • Unmarried adult sons & daughters of legal permanent residents 

 

Would this apply to just new applications or would it apply to all pending applications?

 

It still needs to get through congress.


We are the poster children for chain migration!
