Raleigh Chamber chimes in on immigration reform

Harvey Schmitt, CEO and president of the Raleigh Chamber, points out how not-so-smart immigration policies are hurting local tech firms.  In an N&O op-ed last Friday, Schmitt argues that limiting the number of foreign workers earning graduate degrees in science and technology is hurting the average American worker.  (I am not sure where he gets his 2.6 extra jobs for each new foreign grad student who decides to stay here.)  Local companies are having a hard time attracting an keeping tech workers.  For those interested in learning more about the issue, the Chamber is sponsoring a forum on immigration Monday at 8 a.m.

  1. In addition, take into consideration the outcome of the attorney's cases in immigration. Never base your decision simply on how long they've been practicing. Younger lawyers may lack experience in this kind of field but their knowledge could be better and they are abreast with the new developments in immigration laws. The key point here is how familiar the lawyer is when it comes to immigration.
