S. 2454, the Securing America’s Borders Act, would increase chain migration through a one-time increase of 105,660 visas for exempt families of "unused" employment-based visa holders, plus a one-time increase of 115,000visas for "unused" family-preference holders, plus a permanent increase of 254,000 per year in the family-preference categories. The bill would also increase worker visas by a one-time increase of 90,000 for "unused" employment-based visas, plus a permanent increase of 754,000 employment-based visas per year, plus a permanent 100,000 increase in H-1B visas.
S. 2284, the Save Our Small and Seasonal Businesses Act, would extend for three years an exemption for any H-2B alien (for temporary, or seasonal low-skill workers) who has been counted against the 66,000-visa cap during any of the three previous three fiscal years. S. 2284 has the potential to triple the number of H-2B workers in the United States at any given time.
S. 1918, the Strengthening America’s Workforce Act, would create a new visa category, the H-2C visa, for willing workers. The legislation could potentially skyrocket foreign-worker importation by exempting from any numeric limit foreign students with advanced degrees in math, science, technology, and engineering and the immediate relatives of employment-based immigrants.
S. 1033, the Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act, would: 1) increase permanent, legal immigration by adding an extra 254,000 family-based visas annually; 2) reward virtually all illegal aliens (except those with criminal records or terrorist connections) with amnesty, potentially rewarding 9 million illegal aliens; and 3) create a brand new guest worker program that would bring in 400,000 unskilled workers the first year, potentially allowing for a total increase of anywhere from 10 to 20 percent each year thereafter.
S.Con.Res. 12 would prohibit international trade and investment agreements from increasing foreign-worker importation.
