Roskam Statement on Passage of STEM Jobs Act

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Peter Roskam (IL-06) released the following statement on House passage of H.R. 6429, the STEM Jobs Act, which would create a new green card category for immigrants who have received science, technology, engineering and math doctorates and masters degrees from U.S. universities:

"Today Congress took an important, common sense step towards economic growth and substantive immigration reform. STEM Visa reform gives us the opportunity to create new jobs, stay competitive globally and advance American innovation. Our country boasts the best universities that attract, educate and train the best and brightest in the world. Under the STEM Act, those skilled graduates can stay in the United States and at the cutting edge of technology, creating jobs and opportunity.

"With the STEM Act, we are continuing to remove the roadblocks that constrict American entrepreneurs and small businesses by putting them and their priorities first. I am proud that this bipartisan legislation has passed the House of Representatives and look forward to continuing to champion American ingenuity, opportunity and job growth."
