Under the Immigration and Naturalization Act (INA), the U.S. is currently allowed to accept 675,000 immigrants annually, with certain exceptions for family members and refugees. According to the American Immigration Council, immigration to the United States is based on the following four principles: the reunification of families, admitting immigrants with skills that are valuable to the U.S. economy, protecting refugees, and promoting diversity. Each category is allotted a certain number of individuals, and Congress has established a complicated system for calculating the number of slots available for each category.
Additionally, the U.S. agencies responsible for carrying out immigration law – including U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the U.S. Department of State (DOS) – have strict eligibility requirements and stringent application processes that make it difficult for individuals seeking temporary visas or green cards to find success in the U.S.
