SCHAUMBURG, IL – Today, Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi issued the following statement in response to the news that the immigration plan introduced today in Congress, with the backing of President Biden, would include a provision he’s spearheading, eliminating per-country caps for employment-based green cards:

“As an original cosponsor of the Fairness For High-Skilled Immigrants Act, I’m proud to announce that this this immigration package has incorporated our bill’s fundamental reforms, including the elimination of country-based discrimination for employment-based green cards and the increasing of per-country caps on family-based green cards. These reforms will help our country continue to attract and retain top talent from across the world while growing our economy and creating more good-paying jobs here. Any comprehensive immigration bill must include these necessary fixes to end the green card backlog once and for all, and I will continue to fight for these provisions until they become law.”
