    Report faults oversight of foreign student program

    1 hour ago • By DONNA CASSATA

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A report says the government is falling short in assessing the risks of a program that lets tens of thousands of foreign students stay in the U.S. to work for close to 2˝ years.

    The report raises the possibility of the government losing track of students who might overstay their visas, or illegitimate companies or organizations exploiting the students.

    The Government Accountability Office looked at the optional practical training program in Immigration and Customs Enforcement. As of November 2013, the program had approved 100,000 of the 1 million foreign students in the U.S. to work temporarily in a job related to their completed academic study.

    Sen. Charles Grassley is a senior member of the Judiciary Committee and asked for the investigation.

    I think that the Center for Immigrations Studies published research which says that the best outcome for developing countries is for people to emigrate, then bring their skills and new attitudes back to their home countries. Studying abroad is certainly similar to that. So the only real problem is that we're not spending enuf money to make sure that these folks do in fact take their knowledge and new way of thinking home with them.
