ABOUT THE IMMIGRATION AND NATIONALITY ACT
HOW DOES THE INA AFFECT MY ELIGIBILITY?
The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) was founded with the intention of increasing diversity for immigrants by eliminating the quotas for specific countries. It can be found under Tile 8, in the United States Code. The act focuses on immigration via family relationships and skills rather than racial origins. Under the act, the government can also deport immigrants and naturalized citizens who engage in criminal activities.
The 1965 Nationality Act included several revisions, including:
- A higher number of immigrants from Africa, Asia, and Latin America
- Preference to workers who have exceptional skill
- Preference to helping maintain families
- Eliminating the quota system (which was based on nation of origin)
