Proposal could eliminate backlogged green-card applications

Many people in Florida are concerned about how proposed immigration reforms might affect their own status, especially people waiting on long-backlogged lists. One plan proposed by the Trump administration would eliminate the applications for over 4 million people currently waiting for green card approval in family-based and employment-based immigration categories. Even people who have been waiting for years to have their applications reviewed would have them canceled. They would be required to resubmit their applications under a new system, based on points.

Trump announced that current categories for immigration based on family and employment would be eliminated and replaced instead with a point system. The White House indicated that people currently waiting would receive some kind of point bonus, but no details have been announced. In order for this plan to go into effect, it must be approved first by Congress, as it would mark a major change to U.S. immigration law. No bill has yet been introduced in Congress, so details about how the point system would work are not yet available. Most believe that Democrats will oppose the bill due to the elimination of family-based immigration categories as well as the eradication of the green-card waiting list.
