The United States administration has said that the government was taking steps to end the process and backlogs for lawful permanent residents who are eligible to become US citizens under the H1-B visa process.

“Just last month, for example, as a part of our efforts to strengthen the integrity of our immigration system and reduce potential for fraud, DHS published a final rule relating to H1-B visas,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said at a press briefing on Wednesday.

“So, the changes promote fairer and more equitable outcomes.”

She was responding to a query about illegal immigration and US President Joe Biden’s “seriousness” on the matter.

The White House press secretary added that the administration would continue its work to improve the system within its authorities.

“Obviously, I would refer you to US Citizens and Immigration Services for any specifics on the actions that we have taken. But we take that very seriously. And we’re continuing to do everything that we can to improve the visas process.”
