Rep. Phil Gingrey of Georgia introduced yesterday in the House H.R.477 to make changes related to family-sponsored immigrants and to reduce the number of such immigrants.
This proves again the Republican
party's stance and bottom line for immigration reform not to increase
a single visa number from the current quota system and rather
slice off some immigrant visa numbers from immigration program
of one sector, particularly pro-Democrat programs in order to
increase the visa numbers for certain other immigrant programs,
particularly pro-Republican programs.
Unless they are willing
to compromise and change their current bottom line, the two Chambers
of the Congress will be destined to collide head-on down the
road in immigration reform legislation
