New Senate Immigration Bill Could Seriously Limit Green Cards for Extended Family Members

For many years, immigration policy has heavily focused on families who wish to immigrate to the United States, over those individuals seeking to obtain green cards for economic or job criteria. With senators hard at work negotiating a new immigration bill, which is intended to thoroughly redirect the priorities of the U.S. immigration system, that focus could very likely change to the point where green card applicants may soon find that economic priorities will take a front seat to familial ties. According to reports, this new bill not have a major impact on green cards for immediate family members, but it is expected to seriously limit the number of green cards that will be issued for extended family members.
