New Immigration Bill Will Prevent 400,000 Filipinos From Entering the U.S.

The fate of thousands of Filipinos who are being petitioned by their Filipino immigrant relatives now hang in the balance as the Reforming American Immigration for a Strong Economy (RAISE) Act, which is highly endorsed by President Donald Trump, gets closer to implementation.

Introduced by Senators Tom Cotton (R-Arizona) and David Perdue (R-Georgia), the bill aims to limit the number of green cards issued by the United States government in a bid to reduce legal immigration by 50%. The immigration policy, which is currently based on family unity into a rigid merit-based system, will be completely overhauled.
