We know that the challenges facing our broken immigration system don't start or end with the horrors at the border. For instance, there is a massive backlog of people waiting for green cards. Right now, only 226,000 family green cards and 140,000 employment green cards are available each year. To resolve this problem, Senators Dick Durbin and Patrick Leahy introduced the Resolving Extended Limbo for Immigrant Employees and Families (RELIEF) Act this week, which would completely eliminate the backlog by increasing the number of green cards issued each year. Instead of using country caps that prioritize immigrants from certain countries, this bill would benefit all immigrants waiting for their green cards. It also would help #KeepFamiliesTogether by protecting children who qualify for Legal Permanent Resident status from "aging out" and by classifying spouses and children of immigrants as immediate relatives, which would seem like common sense but.... anyway. Immigrants and their families don't deserve the stress that comes from being neglected and kept in limbo. These new Americans-in-the-making need RELIEF: we urge the Senate to support this bill.
