I-Squared Act of 2003 Improving Immigration Options for Professionals

The Immigration Innovation Act of 2013 (a/k/a I2 Act) was introduced by Sen. Rubio, Coons, Hatch and Klobuchar. The bill has four sections which propose: 1) a welcomed demand based increase in the number of new H-1B to a quota from 65,000 to 115,000; 2) an easier immigration path for STEM students; 3) a recapture and “roll-over” of issued but unused immigrant visas; and 4) allocation of visa processing fees to the promotion of STEM education and retention of workers. We foresee that many of these elements will be included in the immigration reform package. Click here to read the act in it’s entirety, click here.
