A bill has been introduced in the US Senate to provide good news to nearly one million people who are waiting for green cards to establish a permanent residence in America for many years. This bill was introduced in the Senate by four members of the Democratic Party.
Senators Elizabeth Warren, Ben Ray Luzon and Senate Majority Whip Dick Durban introduced the bill on Wednesday, changing some provisions. According to this, immigrants who have regularly resided in the United States for seven years can qualify for lawful permanent residency.
The revised immigration policy in the past has become very embarrassing for many. In our bill, we have revised the cut-off date for the first time in the last 35 years. With this, some immigrants may apply for legal permanent residence, the senator said.
Padilla said that millions of migrants who have been living and working here for decades and contributing to the development of their country can live freely without fear of uncertainty. Immigrant advocacy group FWD.US estimates the bill would benefit about 8 million people, including Dreamers, children of long-term visa holders, emergency workers, highly skilled workers on H-1B visas, and more.
A House subcommittee informed that immigrants are unable to receive green cards due to legal hurdles.
This bill is welcomed by all the immigrants. If this bill comes into force soon, the immigrants living in America will be able to live in America freely.
