    Biden administration announces program changes to attract international STEM students

    Biden administration announces program changes to attract international STEM students

    The programs are designed to ensure that the U.S. is a magnet for talent from around the world, attracting scientists and researchers whose breakthroughs will enable the economy to grow

    The Biden administration on Friday announced policy changes to attract international students specializing in science, technology, engineering and math — part of the broader effort to make the U.S. economy more competitive.

    The State Department will let eligible visiting students in those fields, known as STEM, complete up to 36 months of academic training, according to senior administration officials. There will also be a new initiative to connect these students with U.S. businesses. The officials insisted on anonymity to discuss the changes before their official announcement.

    Homeland Security will add 22 new fields of study — including cloud computing, data visualization and data science — to a program that allows international graduates from U.S. universities to spend up to three additional years training with domestic employers. The program generated about 58,000 applications in fiscal 2020.

    The programs are designed to ensure that the U.S. is a magnet for talent from around the world, attracting scientists and researchers whose breakthroughs will enable the economy to grow. Government data shows that international students are increasingly the lifeblood of academic research.

    The government’s National Science Board reported this week that international students on temporary visas account for more than half of U.S. doctoral degrees in economics, computer sciences, engineering and mathematics and statistics. But in the sciences and engineering, China is fast closing the gap in doctoral degrees by generating nearly as many graduates as the U.S. did in 2018.

    Chamber of Commerce Cheers Biden’s Outsourcing Of American Jobs

    Chamber of Commerce Cheers Biden’s Outsourcing Of American Jobs

    Seth Segal | Jan 24, 2022


    The United States Chamber of Commerce is cheering on President Joe Biden’s expansion of a visa program set to deliver more foreign competition against Americans, while cutting costs for the nation’s largest multinational corporations.

    As Breitbart first reported, “Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced the expansion of the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program whereby corporations like Amazon, Facebook, and BlackRock hire foreign students over American STEM graduates at a 15 percent discount by avoiding tens of billions in FICA taxes.”

    The Chamber of Commerce, representing corporate special interests, cheered this move as “one of a series of key actions needed to address the workforce shortage crisis”. “We welcome the Biden administration’s announcement on international STEM talent.”

    Much more needs to be done to update and modernize our nation’s immigration system, and those types of changes require congressional action. The Chamber will continue to push Congress and the White House to work together and address these pressing issues…”

    In 2020, Amazon ranked as the top outsourcer to foreign students for American jobs, followed by Apple, BlackRock, Facebook, Microsoft, Accenture, Oracle, Bank of America, Capgemini, Cognizant, Deloitte, Citigroup, eBay, Google, Goldman Sachs, Hewlett-Packard, Infosys, JP Morgan, McKinsey & Company, Tata Consultancy Services, Wayfair, and Yahoo, among others.

    These corporations are potentially taking jobs away from STEM graduates in America. These are the same multinational corporations that agitate for mass immigration as a form of cheap labor. In other words, these companies and big business put there own perceived financial interests ahead of America.
