Committee approves bill to eliminate per-country limits on high-skilled immigrants

{mosads}”If that means we get more [immigrants] from India and fewer from Finland, so be it,” Chaffetz said, arguing the elimination of the arbitrary per-country limits would enable U.S. firms to seek and hire the best foreign talent.

Chaffetz emphasized the bill would not raise the total number of employment-based visas available (140,000) but only ensure they go to the most deserving applicants.
