In the modern global economy, highly skilled workers are
increasingly important to continued growth and prosperity. Yet
despite the dramatically increasing demand for foreign skilled
labor, Congress has failed to increase the number of H-1B visas. As
a result, U.S. immigration laws permit only a fraction of willing,
skilled workers to add their talents to our society, reducing the
welfare of both domestic workers and those who were denied access.
Senator Judd Gregg believes reforming U.S. immigration policy would
improve economic growth, expand individual choice, and maintain
America’s competitive advantage in innovation.
