The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) today released an outline of the Senate CIR proposal. The actual text of the bill has not yet been released but, is expected to be released this week. The outline shows significant changes to the employment based permanent residency system including measures that will help to reduce retrogression. The proposal also includes significant restrictions on employers deemed to be dependent upon H-1b workers and also added a labor market test to all H-1b filings. After the text of the bill is released, we will provide a summary.
