Currently, the estimated number of pending employment based green card applications is about 350,000. Recapture of the remaining visas will help to reduce the backlog to a great extent. This will help a lot especially for people whose current projected date of getting green card is year 2045.
In 2008, H. R. 5882 bill was introduced by Rep Lofgren, Zoe to recapture these visas, but the bill never became law.
Will the congress act now ?
