Default Immigration Voice applauds Senator John Cornyn for introducing STEM bill - STAR

Immigration Voice applauds Senator John Cornyn for introducing innovation bill for addressing high-skilled green card needs of the United States. We very much appreciate Senator Cornyn's leadership for fixing the system by introducing STEM green card bill today.

Here are the key highlights of Cornyn STEM bill called - STAR bill:

* Allocating 55,000 new immigrant visas for eligible STEM graduates (Masterís and Ph.D.) of qualifying U.S. research institutions who have job offers in related fields;

* Offsetting this new allocation of visas by eliminating the so-called 'Diversity Visa' lottery program, which is no longer in Americaís national interest; and

* Streamlining STEM graduate studentsí ability to obtain green cards and remain in the United States by allowing 'dual-intent' for those admitted to pursue a STEM degree.

Atleast the Senator is honest on number of GC he is proposing to supply. Creating new GC out of thin air, probably means there is lot of conservative opposition. But taking the diversity visa means no D support.

Default Who is it applicable for?

IF this bill ever gets passed and becomes a law-

Is it aonly applicable to those who file a new Perm/Labor and new I-140 approvals?(of course for those who have graduated with a MS/PHD)

or is it also applicable for those who have Labor/I-140 approved(EB2) and just waiting for the priority date to be current?

In short does it benifit peoplewho have already applied or would it help those who apply after this law has been passed.

Guess, D's are not behind Diversity Visa's as it doesn't give Visa's to any body from big interest countries/ specific Vote Bank.

I advise not to have high hopes on this. This is just a political gesture and Grassley will put a hold on this too if at all it reaches the senate floor which itself is a big IF

Just another bill.

Mr. Obama promises to fix immigration and then tells people that he can't do it, it's the congress which has to do it. Not sure why he promises when he can't really fix it.

Sen. Cornyn favors high skilled immigration but introducing these bills prior to speaking to Grassley is a waste of time. Since Grassley's HOLD is really powerful and he is a ranking member, no one should waste time before asking Grassley.

The truth is harsh. Unless one party controls both branches of congress, it is not going to pass.

This bill will mostly benefit India & China but there should be less of an opposition from EB based ROW as added visas will benefit them too. But ROW people in foreign lands wont like it. Hopefully Senators will pass some meaningful reform that will benefit all communities. Hopefully they will have NOW attitude instead of kicking the can down the road. This year is presidential election year, next year will be first year of new administration/congress have to deal with deficit & bunch of expiring taxes, following year will be congressional election year. Circle will continue. Hopefully politicans will do something bi-partisan instead of running for office 365 days of the year. Still has hope that common sense will prevail.
