Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) has officially introduced the Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment (RAISE) Act, S. 354, in the Senate. The bill would reduce legal immigration by up to 50% by ending future chain migration and the diversity visa lottery.
Roy Beck, President and Founder of NumbersUSA responded saying, "the RAISE Act has a number -- S. 354 -- and one that we will do all possible to ensure that lives on through history as one of the great achievements of this period of our country."
The RAISE Act would:
• End the Visa Lottery,
• Limit annual refugee admissions to 50,000,
• End chain migration,
• Reduce the worldwide level of family-sponsored immigrants from 480,000 to 88,000 by prioritizing nuclear family,
• Add a nonimmigrant, renewable visa for parents of adult U.S. citizens.
