Goodlatte Bill may be proposing to increase EB Green cards by 45% (from 120,000 total to 175,000). This may be in combination with cutting down chain migration & green card lottery.
So that may increase each EB1/EB2/EB3 Green Cards from 40,000 per year to about 58,333 per year.
So EB2 quota per country may increase from 2800 to 4000 per year (considering 7% country cap).

Whenever something good is about to come out for legal immigrations especially for people backlogged in GC queue the troll that goes by the name of "BANEBROWs" gets all worked up. You can see he is updating the thread "EB ROW injustice". So keep an eye on this troll and look out for the signs. If he starts acting up and starts causing panic, that means there is something good on the way for legal immigration.

Also keep in mind "Do not feed the trolls !!" Ignore the thread titled "EB ROW injustice". The more we respond the more we keep his thread alive. Who knows he could also be one of the people working for some immigration firm who hates the fact that we are getting some relief. So, yeah, keep off that thread.

Interesting that he is conscious of the problems legals face.
But he does hint to just increasing the number allocated to EB - just increasing number by 30-40 % does not help much at all.

Just too many - If EB3 is 70 years backlogged, EB2 is also at least 20-30 years backlogged. 45 % increase does not mean much at all.

Lol why do you think EB2 is only backlogged 20-30 years? There are about 20k apps between now and 2010 may. ANd beyond that it will be 20-30k every year so there might be atleast 100-150K by date. so based on say 1500 visas for primaries hou many years do you think will take for 150K??

45 % overall implies only about 3.15 % increase for Indians - without taking into consideration spillover.

that tweet agrees its a Comprehensive Immigration Reform. I dont he has the right one. Perhaps, GOP has a much thinner version of a bill to include DACA, securing border (wall), end of Chain immigration & DV.
If you see any such tweet or link, please share.

What are your thoughts on increasing overall green cards for EB1,EB2 and EB3 from 120K to 175K. This would lead to more spillover to clear the backlog ?

FoxNews, yes, FoxNews is reporting that Trump's crackdown on legal immigration is hurting America

You must read, never seen FoxNews supporting immigration and always they were against.

Not good. Spillover is at the discretion of DOS/USCIS/whoever. Its well known that spillover is not done as it should be - visas are wasted anyway right now. What stops them from wasting more visas.

Not sure how this is going to help. Without any checks in place for EB1C I feel companies will start applying more EB1C's.

No...fox news is NOT reporting any such thing. What you are referring to is an 'opinion piece' from one of their contributors. Such opinion pieces have nothing to do with the position of the publication. You will see such opposing opinion pieces in all publications and media. They are usually used as a pinata for blowback.
