In last week’s issue, we advised that the Employment Visa bill was being prepared for passage in the US House of Representatives. Well, as they say, a funny thing happened on the way to approval. Actually, it just got bumped out for at least another week by Congress focusing their work on finalizing the Respect for Marriage Act for passage last week as well as the annual defense authorization bill. Consequently, no action was taken on the so-called EAGLE Act (Equal Access to Green cards for Legal Employment Act) and it was supposed to be taken up for a final vote yesterday. Unfortunately, it would appear that the measure did not have enough votes to pass however and the latest news on the measure as of last night was that it had been pulled from the schedule. As the Congressional session heads toward adjournment, the final resolve on EAGLE remains to be seen!
