THE WASHINGTON POST GETS IT ON H-1B'S

Rate this Entry

This morning's Washington Post editorial page urges Congress to move quickly to deal with the talent worker visa crisis. 2007's graduating foreign students will shortly be forced to leave the country so the time to act is now:

The immigration reform debate has largely revolved around immigrants
who do jobs Americans are not willing to do. But what about immigrants
who do the jobs Americans are not
able to do?



****

The tens of thousands of H-1B rejects will constitute some of the
world's best and brightest, and America is foolish to block them from
the U.S. economy. After all, according to the National Science
Foundation, a third of all science and engineering doctorates awarded
in the United States go to foreign students (whose numbers are not
limited). And according to the National Venture Capital Association,
over the past 15 years one out of every four public companies backed by
venture capital was started by an immigrant (including Google and eBay).

****

Congress is considering several bills that address the need to reform
the H-1B program, including two that would raise the cap to 115,000. If
they want America's high-tech industries to stay innovative, members of
Congress should address the labor problem vis-?-vis visas -- and
preferably before the class of 2007 heads home.
