American Tech Bosses Lobby US President, Congress on H-1B Permits & Green Cards

In a key development and with a view to put pressure on the incumbent US President Barack Obama to shore-up a bill which would allegedly permit additional qualified immigration into the nation’s territories the top executives of some famed firms across the globe have sent a letter to him.

They have urged him to address the requirement for more qualified, highly-trained professionals, both domestic & overseas, and to endorse immigration improvement in 2013. Reportedly, top chiefs from Microsoft, Google, and Facebook have inked the letter, even as it’s a part of an operation which targets to boost and safeguard the overall interests of the tech field.

Apart from the American president, the letter has also been sent to the US Congressmen & women, not to mention some other important personalities in Washington D.C. The letter expresses support for the bill which would allegedly be a witness to more job-based American permits offered, specifically the job- based US Green Card & the H-1B Permits.

The letter apparently observes that the requirement for more qualified, highly-trained experts, both domestic & overseas, who may produce jobs and straight away contribute to, and boost the national economy is one of the most pressing economic challenges staring the US.

American Congress Concur Overhaul Essential

Meanwhile, several Congressmen & women have reportedly concurred that restructuring is vital. However, they are not on the same ground in the matters of the shape to be given to the same. In recent years, the problem has been aggravated, thanks to an almost total lack of cross-party co-operation in the American capital. As a result, when the Democrats bring-in legislation, the Republicans contest it, & vice versa. Consequently, the arrangement continues to be unimproved and stuck.

They have urged him to address the requirement for more qualified, highly-trained professionals, both domestic & overseas, and to back immigration improvement in 2013.
