Goran-Skopje Comprehensive Immigration Reform debate begins today March 02, 2006 The much awaited Senate debate on comprehensive immigration reform begins today. The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold executive business meetings ("mark-up") to consider the comprehensive immigration reform bill proposed by Chairman Arlen Specter (R-PA). Below are the highlights of the bill. New H-2C Temporary Worker program Guest Worker: The new category would authorize the issuance of a temporary visa to an individual who (1) is capable of performing the labor or services required for the occupational classification; (2) has received an offer of employment; (3) pays a $500 fee in addition to the cost of processing and adjudicating the application; and (4) undergoes a medical exam at their own expense. Period of stay: The initial authorization of H-2C status would run for three years, and could be extended for one additional three-year period. At the conclusion of the six-year period, the individual could not reenter the U.S. in H-2C status until he or she had been in his or her home country for at least one year. Status: If they remain unemployed for more than 45 days, they could lose their H-1C status. Portability would be allowed. Dependants: Family members may accompany the principal under H-4 status on payment of additional $500 fee. Student Visas New F-4 visa: The bill would create a new F-4 visa for individuals pursuing an advanced degree in a math, engineering, technology, or physical sciences program. The F-4 visa would be valid for an additional year after completion of the graduate program while the individual seeks full-time employment related to the field of study. Permanent residence for F-4 nonimmigrants: The bill would also allow students in the newly established F-4 visa classification to be intending immigrants if they plan to seek employment in the U.S. related to the graduate programís field of study. They will be able to adjust their status to permanent residence immediately on payment of $1,000 fee. Increase in OPT period: The bill would authorize 24 months of optional practical training for F-1 students. Off-campus employment: All F students would be eligible for off-campus employment unrelated to the field of study if they maintain good academic standing and the employer attests to the educational institution and the Department of Labor that it has spent at least 21 days recruiting U.S. citizens to fill the position and will pay the greater of the actual or prevailing wage. Such off-campus employment is limited to 20 hours per week during the academic term and 40 hours per week during vacation periods and between terms. H-1B Cap Flexible H-1B Cap: The bill proposes to increase the numbers of H-1B visas available (to 115,000 in the fiscal year following enactment) and adds a market-based escalator mechanism so that the number available annually will fluctuate in response to the demand for such visas in the preceding fiscal year. Cap-exempt visas: In addition, it exempts from the numerical limitation foreign nationals who have earned advanced degrees in science, technology, engineering, or math. Visas for Individuals with Advanced Degrees Exempt from numerical limitation: The bill would exempt from the numerical limitations on employment-based immigration foreign nationals with advanced degrees in science, technology, engineering, or math who have been working in a related field in the United States on a nonimmigrant visa during the three year period immediately preceding their application for an immigrant visa. Flexible labor certification: The bill would also subject such nationals with advanced degrees to more flexible special handling labor certification procedures. Conditional Nonimmigrant Work Authorization Work authorization: The bill would grant a "conditional nonimmigrant work authorization and status to remain in the United StatesĒ to aliens who were employed in the United States on January 4, 2004. The alienís employer would be required to a $500 application fee. Dependants: Spouses and minor children of these workers could qualify to remain in the U.S., although not to work, upon payment of a $100 fee. Family Based Green Cards Immediate relatives removed from annual ceiling: Immediate relatives (spouses, children, and parents) of U.S. citizens will be removed from the annual worldwide ceiling of 480,000 family-based visas and redistribute them elsewhere in the family-based preference system. It would also redistribute the 480,000 family based immigrant visas among the existing four family-based preference categories and redistribute the 290,000 employment-based visas, making modifications to the categories. The bill would also raise the per-country limits. Employment Based Green Cards Increase ceiling: The bill would increase the ceiling on employment-based visas from 140,000 to 290,000 as well as the per-country ceilings. It would also exempt spouses and children of employment-based immigrants from the limits. We at VisaPro will keep a close watch on Senate Judiciary Committee meetings on comprehensive immigration reform and update our esteemed readers on the progress of the discussions, through Immigration News and Immigration Monitor, our monthly newsletter. http://www.visapro.com

Those who have been here two to five years would have half a year to register and three years to apply for a temporary work visa or another kind of visa.

dada Sani Dali i kolku moze obicniot covek da kjari od politichki igri? OooOo spomna deka vakvi predlozi doagjaat samo pred izbori.Predlogot doagja od Bush, a na preliminarnoto glasanje na Komitetot za Pravda na Senatorite, 6-te glasovi "protiv" bea od republikanci:) Tie smetaat deka ne e fer za onie koi igrale spored pravilata i deka vakvata odluka indirektno go podrzuva ilegalnoto vleguvanje vo SAD. Od druga strana, demokratite se drzat za toa deka imigrantite i onaka se vekje tuka, pa da soberat povekje pari od danok:) Uslovite koi treba da gi ispolnuvaat imigrantite se slednive: da dokazat deka vlegle vo SAD pred 7 januari 2004, da platat $1000 kazna, da pominat background check i da dokazat deka se vraboteni. Opsto e poznato deka rabotodavacite ne smeat da vrabotuvaat lugje koi se ilegalno vo drzavata i mene ne mi e jasno koj rabotodavac kje izdade potvrda deka ima zasnovano raboten odnos so ilegalec?!:)

Ajde more, da beshe ova so amnestijata samo izboren marketing kje imashe dosega mnogu povekje od amnestija i nemashe da izigruvaat primadoni po ambasadite americhki koga treba da se dade viza. Sepak Amerika ne e Makedonija. Vistinskata prichina za predstojnata amnestija e samiot fakt shto nekoi 5% od populacijata na Amerika e nadvor od sekakva evidencija (gruba procenka za brojot na ilegalci vo Amerika). Toa e premnogu golema brojka shto e von kontrola vo opshtestvo kade vladee pravoto i zakonot. Onolkav procent neevidentirani zhiteli e i bezbednosen rizik. Ednostavno mora tie 12 i kusur milioni lugje da se izvlechat od sivata zona za da se vidi koj se' e tuka. Bush ushte pred nekolku godini najavi deka vakvo neshto kje mora da se donese, i toa vo edno novogodishno obrakjanje. Toa shto predstojat izbori za kongresmeni e samo prigodno vreme za aktuelizacija, ne i prichina za reformite... Vakvi reformi i amnestii kje ima na redovni vremenski intervali, kako shto kje ima lugje koi kje se dovivaat na site mozhni nachini da gi minat amreikanskite granici (i pokraj seta visoka tehnologija predvidena da se upotrebi so istiov zakon so koj se dava amnestija na ilegalcite). Mozhe ushte nekoja koska za ilegalcite da padne na krajot na Bushoviot vtor mandat, kako shto i Klinton i Regan napravile na krajot na nivnite vtori mandati.

Goran-Skopje The Senate has officially announced a compromise deal involving immigration reform. With final details still to be ironed out, it includes a temporary worker program supported by President Bush. The compromise plan separates the immigrant population into three groups depending on how long they have been in the U.S. as of January of 2004. For those undocumented immigrants living here longer than five years, they would have to pay a fine, their taxes, exhibit good character and learn English. Those who have been here two to five years would have half a year to register and three years to apply for a temporary work visa or another kind of visa. Also part of the deal, illegal immigrants in the U.S. for under two years wouldn`t be eligible for any special treatment and would have to leave. At a news conference after the compromise deal was achieved, Massachusetts Democrat Ted Kennedy said the message from the compromise to immigrants is they are welcome to come here and become citizens. He said they no longer have to hide in the shadows. Pennsylvania Republican Arlen Specter said many problems with immigration reform have been worked through. Specter says the compromise bill is good but not perfect. Vermont Democrat Patrick Leahy says everyone has worked hard to get a bipartisan bill out of the Judiciary Committee. He called it a step forward but acknowledged more work needs to be done. President Bush has called debate on immigration reform a quote, "vital debate." He said a guest worker program is not amnesty and it would quote, "enable us to more secure the border." He also says it recognizes there are people working hard to take jobs that Americans will not take. The proposed reform has sparked protests across the country and right here in Southeast Texas

Goran-Skopje U.S. Senate Agreement on Immigration Law Collapses (Update1) April 7 (Bloomberg) -- A U.S. Senate vote on legislation to overhaul U.S. immigration laws was delayed for at least two weeks after an agreement between Republicans and Democrats collapsed. ``We're going to have to postpone and delay full consideration of this bill,'' Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said. Senators failed to reach agreement on how to handle amendments that Democrats said would undermine provisions for granting immigrants legal status. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter said the measure, which creates a guest-worker program and lets undocumented immigrants gain legal status, will be his ``number- one priority'' when lawmakers return from a two-week recess at the end of the month. ``The agreement has been decimated, has fallen through, because of partisan politics,'' said Specter, a Pennsylvania Republican. ``Regrettably, partisan politics plays too large a role on both sides of the aisle.'' Frist hailed an agreement on the measure yesterday as ``a huge breakthrough'' at a press conference where he was joined by Democratic leaders. Lawmakers took to the Senate floor this morning to announce that the agreement had fallen apart. ``There is a limit to how far you can take us with these debilitating amendments,'' said Senator Richard Durbin, an Illinois Democrat.
