U.S. Congress Return to Session on Wednesday; House Judiciary Committee Set to Mark Up Key Visa Recapture BillsPosted by Lyle, RN Labels: retrogression update
The House Judiciary Committee will convene on September 10, 2008, Wednesday when the United States Congress return for a short session before going into recess again for the U.S. elections.
Listed in the agenda is the mark up of several visa recapture bills including HR 5924 and HR 5882. Both bills will have a major impact in the backlog reduction, if not, effective lifting of the lingering visa retrogression should it get through the committee level as it ushers the possibility of the entire congress acting on the bills before they go into recess again.
Immigration experts, however, doubt if any real progress can be achieved considering the limited time left.
Meanwhile, some sectors are keeping a positive outlook while quietly gathering support for the pending legislations.
