Nuclear Family Priority Act

Sponsored by:  Rep. Jody Hice [R-GA10] in the 115th congress

NumbersUSA's Position:  

Support

H.R. 1149, the Nuclear Family Priority Act, would eliminate the three chain migration categories -- parents, adult siblings, and adult children -- and create a special non-working visa for parents. The legislation would directly decrease overall immigration by more than 111,800 per year (1.118 million a decade). This would indirectly reduce the numbers by even more over time as there would be fewer recent immigrants who are the ones most likely to bring people into the country as spouses or parents of U.S. citizens.

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.
