Bill to reduce Greencard wait times due this week

Current Green card approvals are taking anywhere between 6 to 10 years causing trouble to immigrants and employers to retain the immigrant talent in US.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) and Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) authored bill to reduce wait times for green cards which is due this week. The proposal is to re-use previously allotted unused green cards.

This legislation helps US to retain the talent and remove bureaucratic obstacles.

Cesar Conda writes citing the reports from National Venture Capital Association that

in 2006, 73% of new electrical engineering Ph.D.s in the U.S. were granted to international students, according to the National Science Foundation, while in 2005, foreign nationals received 55 percent of electrical engineering master’s degrees and 42 percent of computer science master’s degrees.
