Biden with Republican Senate(bad combination for GC backlog?)

Not jumping on the gun when elections are still going on.

But suppose, Biden is the President with republican senate. Not sure if s386, any immigration reform, anything that involves congress w.r.t immigration would ever PASS?

This looks like a DO Nothing situation for GC backlog folks. Or going to previous 151 year wait time. Since, family based immigration would resume under Biden.

What are your thoughts on this? Thanks @anil_am22

There is lot of coverage in Indian news media about this statement on Joe Biden’s website: The Biden Plan for Securing Our Values as a Nation of Immigrants | Joe Biden for President: Official Campaign Website

Reforms the temporary visa system. High skilled temporary visas should not be used to disincentivize recruiting workers already in the U.S. for in-demand occupations. An immigration system that crowds out high-skilled workers in favor of only entry level wages and skills threatens American innovation and competitiveness. Biden will work with Congress to first reform temporary visas to establish a wage-based allocation process and establish enforcement mechanisms to ensure they are aligned with the labor market and not used to undermine wages. Then, Biden will support expanding the number of high-skilled visas and eliminating the limits on employment-based visas by country, which create unacceptably long backlogs.
