This bill does not solve the backlogs in a fair way. Currently, each country has an equal percentage share of the annual immigrant visas for employment-based petitions. Foreign nationals from India and China are facing backlogs for their green cards because they oversubscribed their annual quotas. By eliminating the per-country quota system, Indian and Chinese nationals will simply use up the annual allotment of immigrant visas currently allocated to other foreign nationals. It will unfairly penalize nationals from countries other than India and China who will no longer find an immigrant visa immediately available despite their approved petitions. The majority of immigration lawyers oppose this bill out of a sense of fairness; those with predominantly Indian and Chinese clients acknowledge the conflict. The bill sponsor, Rep. Lofgren, comes from a district where her constituents include a high number of Indian and Chinese visa applicants in the high tech field.
