It seems that Congress will be hearing a STEM bill on Friday on highly skilled workers. The STEM bill and also HR 3012 were introduced earlier this year and although made it through the House of Representatives, was put on hold by the Senate. This coming Friday it seems that the STEM bill will be heard again and has a good chance of passing. This is an article from San Jose Mercury News:
“In the first test of a new political climate on immigration reform, the lame-duck House of Representatives is renewing a push to eliminate America’s random visa lottery and replace it with a bill favored by thousands of Silicon Valley immigrant workers: one that would give green cards to foreigners with advanced U.S. degrees in science, engineering and math.”
We are all hoping that this bill will pass, become law and give a good chance to all the Indian nationals.
