Senate leadership has called for another cloture vote. This one at 10.50 AM ET today. The purpose of such a vote is to see if there is still momentum to move ahead with the Senate’s CIR. Yesterday HLG received word that there will be no amendment offered to help Schedule A nurses and PTs, and employment-based immigration may only be available in a limited form.
Suffice it to say there is no longer any reason to support this bill. HLG’s hope is that the bill is declared dead and then the immigration community can get back to advocating for targeted immigration reform, which in our community is liberalized Healthcare immigration.
