Immigration Bill to Expand Green Cards – Enough to Fill Every New Job Created

Via the Daily Caller:

The Senate’s pending immigration law overhaul includes a section effectively tripling the number of green-cards that will be given to foreign employees of U.S.-based companies, according to an anti-immigration advocate who says she has received a near-final draft of the bill.

The bill formally keeps the current annual cap of 140,000 green cards that can be awarded to company employees, but it exempts green cards awarded to several categories of employees, including company managers, said Rosemary Jenks, a lawyer and an advocate for NumbersUSA, which wishes to reduce the level of immigration into the United States.

The likely result is that companies will be able to win 350,000 green cards each year, Jenks told The Daily Caller.
