Please Support High-Skilled Immigration Reform and a National STEM Education Fund

      Voices for Innovation

Our nation needs skilled immigration reform. It will benefit America’s economy, create new jobs, expand opportunity, and help families.

America faces a chronic shortage of skilled workers qualified in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The U.S. Senate has taken positive action to address this challenge by passing legislation (S. 744) that includes high-skilled immigration reform and the creation of a national STEM education fund, paid for only by businesses that use high-skilled visas and green cards, not individual taxpayers or other businesses.

Now we need the U.S. House of Representatives to take action, too.

Please write to your U.S. Representative to voice your support for high-skilled immigration and the national STEM fund.  We need to tell them to keep moving forward on skilled immigration reform.

      People are eating vegetables and they do not know that was the loving care of mostly illegal people as it is time to giving them our thanks. God bless Reagan for his Immigration Law.

      This is a historic opportunity to make a moral choice that will improve the lives of the 11 million people living in the US in the shadows, and the tens of millions of lives of their friends and families. The US stands to gain so much by allowing all of these people to reach their full potential. And for the Republicans, it's a matter of survival: they can make this decision now, knowing that it might cause some pain at the next election; or they can delay even more, and guarantee their party's slow and painful death.
