US Green Card Backlog: The process of getting a green card in the US is slowly getting tougher. Its process has now become longer. Meanwhile, a new problem has arisen for lakhs of Indians who have gone to America on H-1B Visa. It is reported that more than 1 lakh Indian children in the US are at risk of being separated from their parents due to the delay in the process of granting green cards. That is, these children can be separated from their parents.
Delay in granting green card
According to a report in India Today, a lot of green card cases are still pending. Additionally, there is a 7 percent quota for each nation, meaning that only 7 percent of those who apply from each nation will be granted a green card. If all open cases are still resolved at the same rate then the process will take 135 years to complete. Citizens of countries like India, China and Philippines are at the forefront in terms of green card applications.
Why is there a danger of separation of children?
Let us tell you that most of the people from India go to America under H-1B visa. This visa is given to skilled workers. US visa rules state that if a parent is working in the US but does not have a green card, they are still allowed to stay with their children. This permission is given to them under H-4 Visa. But, the H-4 visa system does not allow a child to stay in the US after he turns 21.
To be able to live with their families, Indians entering the country on H-1B visas may want to obtain a green card. However, 1.34 lakh Indian children with H-4 visas, who are currently in the US, will have to leave the country by the time they reach the age of 21 and the green card process is over. If this happens, children will have to be forcibly taken away from their parents and families.
