House Extends Religious Worker Visa Program

Earlier this week, the House of Representatives passed the Religious Worker Visa Extension Act of 2008, a bill that proposes to extend the ‘special immigrant non-minister religious worker’ visa program until January 1, 2010. In addition, the bill would provide an additional six-year extension of the religious worker program, as long as the Secretary of Homeland Security issues a final regulation that would control fraud in the visa program by end of 2008. The bill will now progress to the Senate and, if approved, to the President for final approval.
