Immigrants' List Endorses Senate Bill 2603, the RELIEF Act
The board members of Immigrants’ List voted unanimously to support SB 2603, the Resolving Extended Limbo for Immigrant Employees and Families (RELIEF) Act, hours after it was introduced by Senator Durbin on October 16.
The Immigrants’ List board will fight for this bill because the RELIEF Act:
Takes parts of HR 1044 in removing the country caps for green cards and extending the “hold harmless clause”;
Ends the counting of “derivatives” against caps for preference immigrants, a practical solution for which Immigrants’ List has long advocated;
Classifies both children and spouses of Lawful Permanent Residents as immediate relatives; and generally,
Elegantly addresses the backlogs for employment and family-based green cards.
And the Senate still should NOT pass S 386 without a Hearing!
