    I heard your comments regarding the immigration law – the Fairness In High Skilled Immigrants Act.  It is not fair and ends diversity – primarily benefit India most. Please note that there are 190+ countries (rest of the world) and there are lots of issues regarding porting from EB3 to EB2 and EB1C fraud cases. In addition, there are spillover rules – For example, 30% of the GC went to China and India in 2010. What we really need are the education reforms and STEM Immigration Reform!
