In "Still Waiting: Green Card Problems Persist for High Skill Immigrants," the NFAP conducted research funded by the Kauffman Foundation that shows wait times may be developing for prospective immigrants in the employment-based first preference (EB-1) category (outstanding researchers and professors, aliens of extraordinary ability), which previously had no backlog. The report also reveals that skilled foreign nationals from countries other than China and India in the employment-based second preference (EB-2) – persons of "exceptional ability" and "advanced degree" holders – will soon experience backlogs. The report calls for reforms to immigration law and highlights current bills, such as the Startup Act, that would help to eliminate the backlog.
