Immigration reform may benefit those from India

About 12% of immigrants who come to Florida or other states are thought of as highly skilled. President Trump wants to see that number increase to 57%. The push to base immigration decisions on skill as opposed to keeping families together could be a benefit for those who are currently living in India. Indians apply for about three-quarters of employment-based green cards and just 7% of green cards based on family connections.

Currently, people from India receive more than three out of every four H-1B visas that are awarded to foreign workers. Those who have such a visa are allowed to stay in the United States for up to six years for employment purposes. It is believed that updating the immigration process would allow individuals from India and China to get to the United States faster. Currently, applicants from India could wait up to 150 years to have their applications processed.
