14 Jul US Congress Seeks Inspiration from Canada’s Immigration System
Washington, D.C., July 14, 2021: The US House of Representatives recently held a congressional hearing titled, “Oh, Canada! How Outdated U.S. Immigration Policies Push Top Talent to Other Countries”. Led by Democrats Zoe Lofgren (CA) and Jerry Nadler (NJ), the hearing focused on the growing trend among technology companies and technology workers of shifting employment opportunities to Canada due to limited availability of visas to the United States. The goal of Congressional Democrats was to spur interest in modernizing the U.S. immigration system, which has not experienced a major reform in over 30 years.
