ACIP & SHRM Call on the President and Congress for Action on STEM Green Cards

11/16/2012
Letters to Congress

​Today, ACIP, and our new affiliate SHRM, sent a letter to President Obama asking for bipartisan action before year’s end to address critical reforms that would provide immediate green cards to U.S. STEM advanced degrees with a job offer. Additionally, ACIP and SHRM yesterday sent a similar letter to all members of the U.S. Congress. This is reform that both sides of the aisle support, along with the U.S. business community, and would be a helpful building block to larger reform next year. ACIP has attended some timely meetings with key Congressional offices this week. Whether or not a bill will come to the House floor before the end of the year is still unclear, but ACIP will keep you up-to-date as this unfolds.
