Joe Biden’s inhumane border policy has let more than 1.6 million migrants into the U.S. Illegally. Meanwhile, the number of foreigners waiting years for a green card to work legally in the U.S. is now over nine million. Only about one in 10 people who register for the annual H-1B lottery get a visa.
No wonder our neighbor Canada is taking advantage of our paralysis. Last month, Canada offered a three-year work permit to anyone holding a U.S. H-1B visa, the most common entry permit for immigrants working in the tech sector. The program drew 10,000 applicants in its first 48 hours, a sign of just how much the U.S. visa system is a morass.
Admitting skilled immigrants is a key to more economic growth. We need more trained healthcare workers, scientists, engineers, carpenters, mathematicians, and electricians.
Applications are way up.
But admittances remain flat.
