Tills Visa Law

Stephen K. Tills, Attorney at LAW

20 years Visa wait for one teacher.

Twenty years waiting

Rogie Legaspi is a professional developer teacher from the Philippines waiting to get his green card and a legal alien status in the U.S.A. He has been in the U.S.A. on a skilled worker visa and has waited 20 years for paperwork to clear.

Immigrants in the recent past have been so crucial to our tech success due to skills — often acquired at American universities — in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). So, surely it is not unreasonable to project that they will be crucial to achieving the breakthroughs made possible by continuing advances in information technology.

Immigration Law
Current immigration law makes that doubtful. Aside from the well-publicized 65,000 annual cap on H1B “temporary” six-year visas, which are useless for qualifying immigrants who want to start a business and remain in the United States, current law counter-intuitively sends many immigrants who earn STEM degrees at U.S. universities each year back to their home countries. These are among the most highly skilled individuals we train. They would not only be useful to new and established businesses, but their immigrant backgrounds suggest they will be especially likely to start new companies employing other Americans.

Immigration VIDEO
The Kauffman Foundation released a video that puts a human face on immigrants who want to come here and realize their entrepreneurial dreams. When married with clear statistical evidence and anecdotes about the past and likely future contributions of such individuals to our economy and society, these stories can help bold leaders convince any doubters that the time for reforming immigration policies toward skilled immigrants https://tillsvisalaw.wordpress.com/2012/07/11/we-cant-afford-to-lose/is long overdue.

Perhaps it will take these human stories to help convince the politicians to take the risk. By Robert Litan, Wednesday, July 11, 11:28 AM
