Legislative Help For Highly Educated Foreign Nationals?

On September 22, 2011, Representative Chaffetz (R-UT) introduced H.R. 3012, or The Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act.  The act would eliminate the employment-based per-country caps entirely.  This would constitute a significant improvement over the current situation.  The per-country caps have resulted in lengthy delays in finally getting employment-based green cards (up to 9 years in some cases).  On November 29, 2011, the House passed H.R. 3012.  It now goes to the Senate for consideration.
