If immigration reform passes, which fields will be eligible for STEM green cards?

Asked over 1 year ago - New York, NY

Which fields will be eligible for green cards should the bill pass? I have heard biology and biomedicine won't be. So which other will?

    Answered . It is best to ignore proposed laws. Bills always change. Much of what is being proposed has been proposed in the past. You should wait until law is proved that may help you.

    This is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . I agree with my colleague. The proposed law will change significantly IF any of it becomes law. Even if a law is passed, a committee or some other body must decide just how the law will be implemented. The only thing that we can be sure of now is that what ever is proposed now will not become law exactly as proposed. We will have to "hurry up and wait."
