New proposal for Green Card grant does not change the current rule in the short term

- Aug/2017

Last week The President of the United States, Donald Trump, presented a Bill to reform the legal immigration system and reduce the Green Card grant. Based on the Canadian and Australian system, the proposal gives priority to those with a solid academic and relevant professional background, who are English speakers and financially able.

These are not immediate changes and we are at the very early stages of this proposal. The U.S Congress must receive the proposal and initiate a series of debates and public hearings to evaluate the project, propose changes or reject it. This process will most certainly take a few months.

But nothing changes immediately. We are at an early stage. The U.S Congress must receive the proposal and initiate a series of debates and public hearings to evaluate the project, propose changes or reject it. This process should take a few months. Therefore, no more alarmist tone is needed. There is a whole process in Congress that needs to be respected and awaited.

The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) rules and administrative procedures are constantly being revised. Including rules and methods of combating and detecting fraud. The general orientation is to always not to lie, not to give false information or to present adulterated documents to public agents. Be transparent and respect the laws.
