The recent passage of the STEM Jobs Act in the House is a step in the right direction. Democrats shouldn’t complain that this program will offset the Diversity Visa quota set at 55,000 visas annually, where the minimum education requirement is the equivalent of a high school education. Highly skilled foreign students from U.S. universities have been frustrated by long waits and requirements for residency and have sought employment in more immigrant-friendly countries. The United States needs talent and must reverse the brain drain for our economic well-being.
