Staying Competitive in the High-tech Global Economy: Another Look at the H-1B Visa

Barry Cynamon

International Trade from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This paper addresses a specific suggestion for immigration reform—that we must seek skilled immigrants—by examining support for a move to unlimited H-1B visa issuance. Great care is taken to include up to date media coverage as immigration policy is greatly affected by public opinion. This paper outlines the historical precedent for looser restrictions on immigration and then reviews the current landscape of U.S. immigration and the H-1B visa market, showing the strong moral and economic support for a move to unlimited H-1B visa issuance.
