Three bills were introduced into the House of Representatives this week related to immigrant visas.

On 4/29/08, another bill was introduced by Representative Lofgren (D-CA) that would eliminate the per country level for employment-based immigrants and to end the spill-over of unused immigrant visa numbers between employment-based and family-sponsored categories (H.R. 5921).
