    Immigration bill boosts Green Card for foreign employees

    The bill also exempts “outstanding researchers and professors,” as well as people with doctorates in the very broad section of “science, technology engineering and math.”

    This “STEM” field includes physicists and chemists, engineers, biologists and computer experts.

    The new law would also exempts certain categories of employees, including “multinational executives and managers if they been employed at least one year,” according to the text read to TheDC by Jenks.

    The Senate’s pending immigration law overhaul includes a section effectively tripling the number of green-cards that will be given to foreign employees of U.S.-based companies, according to an anti-immigration advocate who says she has received a near-final draft of the bill.

          The proposal seeks to raise the cap on H-1B visas for highly-skilled workers from 65,000 to 110,000 and allow for it to rise as high as 180,000. The cap will be adjusted on the basis of a new formula, the High Skilled Jobs Demand Index, based on how many petitions are filed for the visas and the unemployment rate in the management, professional and related occupations category of Bureau of Labor Statistics data.

          According to Senator Menendez of New Jersey, the press conference on CIR is getting pushed until tomorrow out of respect for Boston victims.
