    A group of US lawmakers is asking the Biden administration to take action to help Green Card applicants from India. These applicants have been waiting for 195 years and are stuck in a difficult situation. The lawmakers, led by Congressmen Raja Krishnamoorthi and Larry Bucshon, sent a letter to Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting executive action to provide relief to high-skilled employment-based visa holders.

    In their letter, the lawmakers also asked the administration to make all dates for filing employment-based visa applications “current” in the Bureau of Consular Affairs’ published Employment-Based Visa Bulletin.
