Skills-based immigration will grow the US economy. @DanielGriswold @Mercatus @Larry_Kudlow

Congress should implement several important reforms:

Increase the available number of permanent immigrant visas for high-skilled (including STEM) workers who are employed or receive an offer of employment from a US-based company; Reduce certain family immigration categories for extended family members, including adult children and siblings of US citizens; Expand temporary visa programs for both high- and low-skilled workers to meet the evolving demands of the US labor market and economy; Allocate visas based on employer demand in order to meet economic needs; and Establish a fee-based temporary visa system to regulate demand while generating additional revenue.
