legislation backed by the Trump administration pushing for merit-based 
immigration and increasing the allotment of Green Cards by a hefty 45 
per cent annually has been introduced in the House of Representatives, a
 move that could benefit Indian techies if signed into law.

    500,000 Indians have been waiting in queue for Green Cards

    120,000 of these cards are available annually at present in the US

    175,000 will be the count after 45% raise if Bill is signed as law

The legislation ‘Securing America’s Future Act’, if passed by Congress and signed into law by US President Donald Trump,
 will end the diversity visa program and reduce the overall immigration 
levels from currently averaging 1.05 million to 260,000 a year.

Indian-American technology 
professionals, who come to the US mainly on H-1B visas and opt for Green
 Cards or legal permanent residence status, are expected to be a major 
beneficiary of the ‘Securing America’s Futures Act’. As per unofficial 
estimate, there are nearly 500,000 Indians waiting in the queue for 
Green Cards and have to seek annual extensions of their H-1B visas. Many
 wait for decades to get Green Cards. The H-1B program offers temporary 
US visas that allow companies to hire highly skilled foreign 
professionals working in areas with shortages of qualified American 

The increase in the number of Green 
Cards per annum is likely to reduce their wait period drastically. 
Having a Green Card, officially known as a Permanent Resident Card, 
allows a person to live and work permanently in the US. However, the 
elimination of chain migration is likely to badly affect those 
Indian-Americans who are planning to bring their other family members to
 the US.

Securing America’s Future Act eliminates Green Card program for relatives, other than spouses and minor children.

A merit-based immigration system, the 
Trump administration feels would admit the best and the brightest around
 the world while making it harder for people to come to the country 

Observers say this could benefit technically-qualified people from countries like India and China.


The legislation creates a workable 
agricultural guest worker program to grow the US economy, authors of the
 legislation said. In a late-night statement, the White House said the 
legislation “would accomplish the President’s core priorities for the 
American people”.
