California Healthcare Institute Urges Congress to Expand Access to H-1B Visas and Green Cards as part of Comprehensive Immigration Reform
Date:6/11/2013

La Jolla, CA (PRWEB) June 11, 2013

CHI-California Healthcare Institute this week submitted a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, expressing support of provisions included in comprehensive immigration reform legislation that would allow employers greater access to U.S.-educated and trained immigrant scientists and engineers. CHI is a non-profit public policy research and advocacy organization for California’s biomedical R&D industry.

California is the worldwide leader in biomedical investment, research and development, with more than 2,300 biomedical companies and public and private research institutions advancing scientific knowledge and developing new diagnostics tools, treatments, and technologies addressing diseases and conditions including cancer, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, chronic pain, and cardiovascular, respiratory and infectious diseases.

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.

“While comprehensive immigration reform is needed now more than ever, it is essential that the U.S. remains the worldwide leader in breakthrough innova
