IMMIGRATION MEASURES INTRODUCED IN CONGRESS

Several immigration-related developments on Capitol Hill today. First, a provision extending E-Verify and the EB-5 regional centers until September was included in the big omnibus spending bill coming tomorrow. Also, Congresswoman Lofgren introduced HR 1127, a separate bill extending the Conrad 30 and religious worker bills past the March deadline until next September as well. Finally, Congressman Stupak (D-MI) introduced HR 1136, a bill that would bring back the H-2B returning worker provision.
