SUMMARY

 

While it appears unlikely that Congress will take up a comprehensive immigration reform bill this year, efforts are underway in Congress by proponents of high-skilled immigration reform to gather momentum for reforms to legal immigration laws for high-skilled workers. 

Supporters want to increase the availability of H-1B visas and create more access to green cards for high skilled foreign nationals. While technology companies insist the demand for high-skilled workers far exceeds the country’s supply of domestic labor in STEM fields, critics say the industry has created an artificial shortage to keep wages low.

Does the United States need more foreign high-skilled workers? What are the economic benefits of increasing the availability of  H-1B visas and green cards? Will this influence the debate over visa reform for low-skilled workers? Is it likely that Congress will first deal with the issue of high-skilled immigration and how will that impact the chances of comprehensive immigration reform?

Join National Journal for a forum of key stakeholders and experts for a robust discussion on the prospects of high-skilled immigration overhaul.
