Eagle Act: Hope for Indians stuck in Green Card backlog

In a relief for tens of thousands of Indian nationals stuck in Green Card limbo, a bipartisan legislation introduced in the House of Representatives aims to remove per-country limit on employment-based green cards.

Introduced by Democrat Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren and Republican House member John Curtis, the Equal Access to Green cards for Legal Employment (EAGLE) Act of 2021 phases out seven percent per-country cap on employment-based immigrant visas.

It also raises per-country cap on family-sponsored visas to 15 percent.
