Report: U.S. Losing High Skilled Immigrants to Canada, China, and Australia

“As our competitors press ahead with strategic policies suited to a global century, how much longer can America afford to drift with an immigration regime built in 1965?” This is the question addressed in recent report by the Partnership for a New American Economy and The Partnership for New York City. According to the report (which is summarized with a link to the report on this Immigration Impact blog post), as other countries simplify and expand their immigration programs to attract entrepreneurs and high-skilled workers, the U.S. maintains an old system that makes it difficult for much needed workers to secure a visa. Many high-skilled workers recruited by China, Australia, and other countries are graduates of U.S. universities.
