Schumer, Cornyn Push "High Skill" Immigration Bill - We Need More Foreign Job Seekers?
"A group of U.S. senators pledged Tuesday to open up the country's borders to high-skill immigrants, with lawmakers arguing that the U.S. is turning away some of the world's smartest people. Senators Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, and John Cornyn, a Texas Republican, both called for immigration reform that would allow more high-skill workers into the U.S.," IDG News says.
"My immigration proposal will ensure that the best and brightest students from around the world in science, engineering, technology, and mathematics, who study in our universities, can stay here after getting their degrees. We will do this by stapling a green card to their diploma," Schumer said.
