Immigration Bill Could Jeopardize Future of Home Health Care Workforce


I've drawn much strength, encouragement and inspiration from my immigrant aunts, uncles and cousins, who have contributed greatly to this country, working in technology, science, health care, business and law, and taking part in their communities.

A Politico/Morning Consult survey released Wednesday found a majority of voters support the bill's proposals to: establish a points system based on education, English-language ability and prospective salary - 61 percent; limit the number of refugees offered permanent residency - 59 percent; and give greater weight to an immigration applicant's job skills over their familial ties in the USA - 56 percent.

Last week, he was in the national spotlight with President Donald Trump and U.S. Sen. "This bill, if passed, will be damaging for Seattle and Washington state".

In case of a tie, the first criteria to determine selection are the one with the higher level of education and proficiency in English. "Even when Congress has been hostile to immigration, the President has always stood on the other side of the issue". Of this number, 387,323 are from the Philippines. Legal permanent residents holding green cards can also sponsor spouses and children.

"To deny the ability of a USA citizen to petition for a parent is a direct attack on a right of a United States citizen", Atty.

Under the proposal, older parents could come on renewable temporary visas for caretaking, but what of the families who might need a brother or sister to help instead? The initial "W" petition may be requested for five years and another five-year extension or renewal. Refugee admissions have been below 50,000 in only four of the past 30 years.

Reduce family-migration quota from 226,000 to 88,000.

Our current chief executive, who, probably inadvertently, revealed that he doesn't even know if he is a civilian or in the military since he was sworn in, says that if an immigrant is allowed to enter the country under his new plan he or she would not be allowed to immediately collect welfare benefits.

"We simply can not find enough American workers to fill these jobs, despite having good benefits and many different kinds of outreach programs", Benjamin said. The US citizen sponsor would have to be responsible for the "W" non-immigrant. To be eligible, an applicant must have a valid job offer which would have to prove that no Americans would be deprived of the job being offered.

When he was elected, there was a faint hope that Mr Trump might be the one politician with both a sufficient command of his base to fix America's broken immigration system. There will be two draws (of six-month intervals) within a year. Would he or she be given a written English test, too?

Assuming the points assigned for each criterion do not change, the result would be more highly skilled than low-skilled workers qualifying to enter the U.S. as permanent residents.

It would prioritize what Cotton's web site calls "ultra high-skilled immigrants who spur innovation, create jobs and make America more competitive", while turning away low-skilled or unskilled workers for permanent work visas.

We would grant there always will be some need for manual labor, but proportions are important. About 45 percent of voters in the poll believe that H-1B visa workers generally help the USA economy.

In fact, last month, the Departments of Labor and Homeland Security agreed to issue an additional 15,000 H-2B visas because there are no Americans applying for or available for the non-professional jobs.

At least Trump's "perfect 10" immigrant-recruitment strategy favors talent over evening wear.

And while mainstream members of the Republican Party were once more aligned with pro-business conservatives, who were sanguine about the economic advantages of immigrant workers, a more strident wing-epitomized by Smith and Jeff Sessions, who left the Senate to become the Attorney General-began pushing a more general anti-immigrant line that, decades later, has won out in the Trump Administration.
