Foreign Science and Engineering Presence in U.S. Institutions and the Labor Force

Description:

The scientific community has been divided over proposals to impose stricter
immigration limits on people with scientific and technical skills. Attempts to settle
upon the balance between the needs for a highly skilled scientific and technical
workforce, and the need to protect and ensure job opportunities, salaries, and working
conditions of U.S. scientific personnel, will continue to be debated. This report
addresses these issues and their implications.
