HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE
PASSES BILL TO KILL VISA LOTTERY

Next Stop: House Floor (send more faxes)

The thousands of you who were watching our webcast of the proceedings that just ended know the good news:

The House Judiciary Committee voted 19-11 to pass H.R. 704, the SAFE for America Act to end the Visa Lottery.

Perhaps even more importantly, the committee refused several amendments that would have re-allocated the 55,000 visas a year to other immigration categories.

There’s a blog on the subject here.
