Atlanta, GA, December 8, 2023: Congressman Rich McCormick has introduced the Immigration Visa Efficiency and Security Act, a comprehensive bill aimed at modernizing the United States’ immigration laws to enhance fairness, efficiency, and national security.

By fostering a multicultural working class, we are not only enhancing our economic prowess but also reaffirming America’s status as a land of opportunity for all.”
