GOVERNORS BEG CONGRESS FOR MORE VISAS

According to an article on about.com:  “Governors of 13 states have sent a joint letter to both the Senate and the House, imploring them to let Congress increase quotas on H-1B work visas and employment-based green cards. In the letter, they cite the worrisome U.S. “shortage of highly skilled professionals in math and science,” pointing out “that foreign talent has a role to play in our ability to keep companies located in our state and country.” The letter calls for swift legislation to address the visa shortages.”

The site has an interesting “immigration issues blog” that I recommend.

And each night, she spends hours in her cozy Baltimore apartment mingling online with strangers who are equally fixated on the same topic: getting their soul mates through the U.S. immigration system.”
