Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

40% of America's Top Cancer Researchers are Foreign-Born

Rate this Entry

The National Foundation for American Policy released a report today outlining the contributions of immigrants in our country's war on cancer. According to the report, 42% of the cancer researchers at the top seven cancer institutes in America are foreign. And much higher in some places. For example, 62% of the cancer researchers at Houston's MD Anderson are immigrants.


With that data in mind, it's worth asking the question of why the House stripped out cancer researchers from the recently considered STEM legislation before it dd.

    Some clowns give anti-immigrant groups comfort by claiming brain drain from developing countries...but the fact is, the results of the research benefits everyone even the country the researcher left behind...somthing that is often overlooked.

    It's only because so many Americans have received a microbiology degree from Harvard and now can't find a job... not!
