Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration

115,000 H-1Bs . . . OR EVEN MORE?

Rate this Entry

by Chris Musillo

The news around Comprehensive Immigration Reform is moving
at a breakneck pace.  On Tuesday, President
Obama will speak in Las Vegas
.  This
is expected to be the launch for the President's plan for Comprehensive
Immigration Reform.  The President is
firmly behind CIR and likely will sign any bill that legalizes most or all of
the 12 million or so undocumented. 

The House of Representatives was expected to be a different
story.  Unlike the Senate, which is
controlled by the President's Democratic party, the House is controlled by the
Republicans who were expected to put up a bigger fight on immigration. 

Yet, in a closed door meeting on Friday, Speaker John
Boehner (R-OH) told
the Ripon Society
that a group of dedicated policy wonks and politicians
have been meeting on and off for three or four years and that, "Frankly, I
think they basically have an agreement".

As if that weren't encouraging enough, Computerworld reported
on Friday
that a bipartisan group of influential Senators were ready to
introduce a high-skilled immigration bill, the Immigration Innovation Act,  that calls for the H-1B cap to increase to
115,000 per year, from its current 65,000. 
The H-1B cap would contain a "market-based escalator" that would
increase or decrease the H-1B cap as employer-demand ebbed and flowed, although
it could never fall below the 115,000 threshold.
