Public Description:  

H.R. 41, the Mass Immigration Reduction Act, called for deep reductions in all categories of immigration, including: ending the chain migration categories for parents of adult children and siblings of adults, reducing the category of skilled workers to 5,000 per year from its current ceiling of 120,060 per year, limiting refugee admissions and asylee adjustments to a total of 25,000 annually and requiring that refugees and asylees reside legally in the United States for five years before they could apply for adjustment to permanent resident status, and ending the visa lottery. Overall, H.R.41 would have reduced immigration by almost 5.5 million over a ten-year period.
