H.R. 633: Bill To Eliminate Per Country Limit in Employment Based Immigration

Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah announced that he has introduced a new bill, H.R. 633 to Eliminate Per Country Limit in Employment-Based Immigration.

He introduced the similar bill H.R. 3012 in the 112th Congress which was successfully passed in the Republican House but failed in the Democratic Senate.

Elimination of per country limit in the employment-based immigration was also introduced by another Senator from Utah, Orrin Hatch, as part of the Immigration Innovation bill.

According to Rep. Chaffetz, Sen. Mike Lee of Utah will introduce a companion bill in the Senate. The same happened with H.R. 3012 last year.

Again, the chance for passing as a piecemeal legislation is questionable, but this bill can affect the employment-based immigration component of the CIR.
