Reuters is reporting on the release of the report.



According to the NRC, "The global scientific enterprise thrives on the movement of
students and scholars across borders and among institutions...For more than 50 years U.S.
research universities, the envy of the world, have welcomed and
fostered the talents of both foreign-born and U.S. students in the
service of national and economic security." The report discusses the importance of having an immigration policy that promotes both science and security.



According to Reuters:

With fewer American
students choosing careers in science and engineering, the American
research and development effort cannot be sustained without a
significant and steady infusion of foreign participants, the committee
said.
