California Healthcare Institute Urges Congress to Expand Access to H-1B Visas and Green Cards as part of Comprehensive Immigration Reform

As the Senate takes up legislation this week to overhaul our nation’s broken immigration system, CHI encourages Senate Leadership to ensure that the reform package includes provisions to expand access to H-1B visas and green cards for U.S.-educated and trained highly skilled immigrant workers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.

Notably, a study released this week by the Washington, D.C. based Brookings Institution found that San Jose, California has the most STEM-based economy of all metropolitan areas in the country. Without expanded access to the most competitive graduate-level talent from around the world, California’s innovative biomedical sector will be hindered in its efforts to research and develop important new medicines and technologies for patients, thus weakening our position in the increasingly competitive global economy.
