Delaney Co-Sponsors Immigration Reform Legislation

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman John K. Delaney is an original co-sponsor of the STAPLE Act (H.R. 1227) which has been introduced with bipartisan support. In addition to Delaney, the legislation is sponsored by two Republicans, Rep. Erik Paulsen (MN-3) and Rep. James Renacci (OH-16), as well as Democrat Mike Quigley (IL-5).

The STAPLE Act would exempt aliens who have earned a Ph.D. in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics from a U.S. university and have a job offer from a U.S. employer from the direct numerical limitations on H-1B Visas.

"Making it easier for the scientists and engineers trained in our universities to continue to work here is essential to making our businesses more competitive," said Congressman Delaney. "To strengthen the middle class and grow our economy we must implement a broad-based competitiveness agenda that helps our workers, entrepreneurs, and businesses thrive in the high-tech global economy. The STAPLE Act is the kind of common sense, bipartisan, legislation that we need more of in Washington and I am proud to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to introduce this bill."
