Immigration: Legislative Issues on Nonimmigrant Professional Specialty (H-1B) Workers [Updated February 12, 2004]   [open pdf - 88KB]

This report tracks legislative activity related to nonimmigrant professional specialty (H-1B) workers. "Proponents of current H-1B levels say that the education of students and retraining of the current workforce is a long-term response, and they assert that H-1B workers are essential if the United States is to remain globally competitive. Some proponents argue that employers should be free to hire the best people for the jobs, maintaining that market forces should regulate H-1B visas, not an arbitrary ceiling."
