The new president of the United States, Joe Biden, hinted at giving relief to migrants living in the US soon after taking power. Now the Citizenship Bill -2021 has been introduced in the US Parliament by the Biden government. If this bill is passed and becomes law, then it will also benefit the Indian diaspora students and professionals living there.
In the event of the passing of this bill, the earlier restrictions on restricting the number of migrants from any country for employment-related green cards will also be removed. Also, people dependent on H1B visas will also be allowed to work. After the bill is passed in both houses of the US Parliament, it will take the form of law when President Joe Biden signs it.
The US Citizenship Bill-2021 will prove to be of immense benefit to Indians as well. Because it will ease the way to grant citizenship. America has the largest number of IT professionals and American universities have the largest number of Indian students. This major step of the US administration will benefit Indian migrants who have been waiting for a green card for a long time.
There are thousands of Indian students at universities in the United States for degrees in science, engineering, mathematics, and technology. The bill also provides for the easement of degree holders in the United States. However, the ruling Democratic Party would also need the support of 10 Republican MPs to get this bill passed. The White House has expressed hope on the subject that they will definitely get support.
