A new report from the Brookings Institute Center for Technology Innovation argues that US immigration policy should focus on prioritizing high skilled workers rather than family immigration categories. The report calls on Congress to increase H-1B numbers for those completing science, technology, engineering and math programs in the US. It also calls for the digitization of the US immigration process to increase speed and reduce errors. And it calls on Congress to allow visa numbers to fluctuate based on the US unemployment rate and changes in gross domestic product. The last change is one that is really important if we are to de-politicize the process since Congress has a terrible record of reacting to macroeconomic changes far too late to be helpful.
