WASHINGTON – Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), a member of the Senate Judicial Immigration Subcommittee, today announced, along with Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) in the Senate, their multi-party agreement to amend Lees Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act. The bill is 31 pages long. While many refer to the bill as S. 386, the text itself says HR 1044. The reason is that the amendments are added to Bill HR 1044, which has already been passed by Parliament. So don`t get confused, both of them technically lead to the same for the final vote. Below are the changes/modifications that were added based on the agreement with Sen. Durbin. We refer only to changes or changes to the previous text of S386 / HR 1044.

And the sooner we solve them, the better, and America will be.
If Congress can come back, I hope that Senator Lee and I can move forward and offer the agreement that we have reached in the Senate. ” – The bill that Lee passed today is an amended version of what the House of Representatives passed. It`s got to go into the house. – McConnell- Pelosi must establish a special conference committee with members of the House of Representatives and the Senate to reach an agreement. First, Durbin sought unanimous approval of the Lee Durbin party`s agreement, which changes equity for high-skilled immigrants. The Lee Durbin agreement would make three amendments to the Fairness for High JurisdictionAl Immigrants Act. First, it would immediately protect immigrants and their families who are lagging behind by allowing them to “go early for green cards.” This would allow workers to change jobs and travel without losing immigration status and prevent the children of migrant workers from “ageing” from the green card permit so as not to have to be deported while waiting for a green card. Second, the amendment would create a green card for immigrant workers who are unable to “get passed early” because they are late abroad.
