STEM Jobs Act

Statement

Today I voted to support bipartisan legislation that would allow more foreign students who graduate from U.S. schools with advanced technical degrees to stay in the country. The bill would eliminate the Diversity Visa Program and shift up to 55,000 green cards a year to foreign students who graduate from qualified U.S. schools with a doctorate or master's degree in the STEM disciplines: science, technology, engineering and math. It's important that we keep these talented students in America to help grow our economy and create STEM jobs. I am always willing to work with my Republican colleagues on the other side of the aisle to create more jobs in Memphis and across the country.
