Senate Bill Fails Again but ….
On Thursday, the Senate bill designed to eliminate the per country limits for green card cases failed again. This time, it was blocked by Senator Perdue from Georgia. The current concern centers around the negative impact that the bill would have on the recruitment of international RN's from the Philippines. It is expected that Senator Perdue and Senator Lee will try and work out a compromise to protect this important industry. Whether or not a compromise can be achieved is unknown at this time but, it is believed by many to be closer to passage than it has in the past. More insight onto the current state of this bill can be found at the WSJ. If you would like to follow the bill using the official Congressional web-site, you can access that here.
