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.


Here is the bill text:
