Ensuring a Strong High-Tech Workforce Through Educational and Employment-Based Immigration Reforms

Balanced reforms in the United States’ immigrant and non-immigrant admissions programs are urgently needed to help U.S. employers and U.S. workers compete and be successful in knowledge-based, technology-driven global markets. Instead of increasing our national dependence on temporary visa programs, IEEE-USA recommends that permanent (immigrant) admissions programs be the preferred source of supply for professionals in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields who may be needed to satisfy labor market demands that cannot be met through enhanced education and training opportunities for American workers.
