The US Senate may vote on its comprehensive and tech-friendly immigration bill as early as this afternoon. While the vote is set for Friday, lawmakers may move it up because tomorrow is the eve of a congressional recess. The legislation would increase the number of high-skilled immigrants allowed into the US and create a “startup visa” for foreign entrepreneurs wanting to start companies in the country. If passed, as seems likely, the legislation will then be considered by the House of Representatives, where it faces a tougher journey.
