After H-1B, Now Trump Targets 'Green Card'

After holding the neck of immigrants with tighter visa rules, now the new Trump govt. is planning to cut short the number of issuing Green Cards by 50 percent.

2 top Republican senators have just introduced a legislation in the Senate, proposing to reduce the number of Green Cards issued every year from the present one million to half a million. The RAISE Act is said to have the backing of the Trump administration.

If passed in the Senate, this new legislation could upset the plans of Indians aspiring to obtain Permanent Residency in the US. At present, the average waiting period for Indians to get Green Card is around 10 years but this could increase to 35 years if the proposed Bill becomes a law.
