Immigration reforms for skilled workers

The National Research Council recently reported that immigration restrictions on the admission of special skilled immigrants as scientists, engineers and technologists are hurting the development of useful and profitable technologies here. President-Elect Obama has stated that comprehensive immigration reform to encourage skilled workers to enter and remain in the U.S. is imperative. For example, in the aerospace industries, the U.S. has been hampered in being competitive. This is specifically related to the industries inability to obtain skilled professionals.The H-1B category that is for skilled workers is capped at 65,000 visas per year. This quota is used up on the first day the visa is available. This stringent cap does not protect U.S. workers by denying access to foreign professionals. Rather jobs go abroad when the need exists and we simply are not able to compete internationally. Without the ability to obtain skilled technologists, the U.S. economy suffers.The H-1 category cap should be doubled forthwith even by a Presidential Executive Order.
