1) That ignores that #HR392 has a transition period to prevent this from happening, 2) US would still get the exact same diversity of immigrants, but wait times would be equal, 3) if you don't want other nationalities to wait, raise the overall caps!
HR392 institutes the fairest possible EB immigration system: first come, first served. It doesn't increase legal immigration at all, meaning that opposition to it is based on an aversion to having "too many" of certain *types* of immigrants. This is worse than nativism.
Unless you favor discriminating against Indians, the only reason to oppose getting rid of the EB per country limits is that you want a dysfunctional system for #H1Bs. You want people to give up and leave the country. We know this is Cissna's goal.
