Introduced in House
Nuclear Family Priority Act 

This bill amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to eliminate parents from
the definition of "immediate relatives" with respect to those aliens not subject
to worldwide immigration levels or numerical limitations. 

Existing family-sponsored immigrant categories are replaced with a single
preference allocation for spouses and children of permanent resident aliens.

This bill: (1) reduces the number of, and revises the calculation for, fiscal
year family-sponsored immigrant entrants; and (2) establishes a nonimmigrant
visa category for an alien who is a parent of a U.S. citizen at least 21 years
old.
