That is why the bill was sent to Congress: the White House
WASHINGTON: President Joe Biden is determined to get the U.S. Congress to fix the fragmented U.S. immigration system as soon as possible, White House Press Secretary Jen Saki told a news conference Wednesday. Biden sent a new immigration bill to Congress last February. Several reforms have been proposed in the bill, including removing the employment-based green card issuance limit per country. It will also pave the way for issuing green cards to 10 lakh crore unregistered people.
Saki told reporters that he strongly believes that the U.S. immigration system has broken down on several levels and that it needs to be fixed as soon as possible, and that he wants Congress to move forward with appropriate action in this regard. Millions of foreign workers who then came into the country legally but could not obtain permanent citizenship due to lack of proper documents will have the opportunity to obtain citizenship.
The law will benefit millions of Indian IT professionals and their families. Responding to another question about the delay in issuing official cars allowing H4 and L2 visa holders to get jobs, she said partly because the presidential administration was trying to correct the immigration policy as soon as possible.
