Public Description:  

H.R. 2330, the Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act, would increase permanent, legal immigration by adding an extra 254,000 family-based visas annually, reward virtually all illegal aliens (except those with criminal records or terrorist connections) with amnesty, potentially rewarding 9 million illegal aliens with amnesty, and add an extra 150,000 employment-based visas (mostly for unskilled workers) each year. Additionally, it would create a brand new "guest" worker program that would bring in 400,000 unskilled workers the first year. Depending on how fast U.S. employers grabbed up those visas, the total could increase by anywhere from 10 to 20 percent each year thereafter.
