Public Description:  

H.R. 5398, the Immigration for a Competitive America Act, would move some family-based green card categories to employment-based categories and lead to the quadrupling of H-1B guest-worker visas. The legislation would also mandate E-Verify and strengthen criminal penalties for employers, but would allow foreign workers to claim tax credits for their children.
