  • Keeping America Competitive: A Proposal to Eliminate The Employment-Based Immigrant Visa Quota

    This article advocates for the elimination of immigrant visa caps on the number of employment-based (EB) immigrants admitted as lawful permanent residents (green card holders) on an annual basis. These caps deter talented immigrants from migrating to the United States, making American companies less competitive. The proposed solution would allow the labor market and currently existing statutory provisions, rather than an artificial cap, to dictate the number of EB immigrants. This would ensure that U.S. employers are able to attract and keep the talent they need to compete in the global marketplace while protecting the American labor market from being flooded by unnecessary workers.
