Two Republic Senators introduced a new information bill last week. The bill was supported by President Trump.
While it is certain that this bill has zero chance of becoming law in its current form, it is interesting to see the concept of the point system spelled out in the bill.
Calculated your points based on the proposal to see if you are qualified to receive a green card(not family based immigration).
The point system lists the following elements to calculate your total points. You need at least 30 point to be considered for immigration.
26-31 years 10 points
31-35 8 points
36-40 6 points
41-45 4 points
46-50 2 points

High school anywhere 1 point
Foreign Bachelor's degree 5 points
US bachelor's degree 6 points
Foreign Master's in STEM 7 points

60%-69% percentile 6 points

4. Extraordinary Achievement

5. Job Offer

6. Investment and management

Please add all your points to see if you have at least 30.
If you are married, your spouse will need to calculate under the system and if his/her points are higher than yours, use your points to proceed.
If your spouse's points are lower than yours, your points will be adjusted by times 70% and your spouse's points time 30%; then combined your points and your spouse to determine the final points.
