An estimated 6 million immigrants already work essential jobs and immigrants make up one-sixth of the overall US health care workforce. New proposed legislation recaptures visas for health care workers and expedites processing of temporary and permanent work visas for health care workers and essential business workers. At the same time, increased demand for and high turnover rate for first responders have far exceeded what the US workforce can provide. Essential businesses – especially those along the food supply chain – have increased hiring to meet overwhelming demands.
The HEROES Act, which is currently circulating through the legislature, prompts visa applicants to move fast to file. This legislation would expedite temporary and permanent work visa processing for health care workers. It also includes extending work authorization for undocumented workers in essential industries including health care, farm workers, food processors, and first responders. The Department of Homeland Security would be directed to relax regulations governing H-2A and H-2B visas as well.
The related proposed Healthcare Workforce Resilience Act that is set to recapture 40,000 green cards for nurses and physicians limits time to file to 90 days after the termination of the President’s COVID-19 emergency declaration. Similar limits to file under these expedited and relaxed conditions is expected. That means it’s time to file.
