Christine Alden's commentary on H-1B visa reform featured in Miami Herald

Over the last few months, Weiss, Alden & Polo, P.A has been closely monitoring discussions on Capitol Hill concerning the H-1B visa program, which enables companies to bring foreign workers here to the U.S. to help fill the existing skills gap.

Specifically, we've been monitoring the growing call to reform the program, which detractors in both Congress and the White House claim is becoming increasingly rife with fraud and which serves to facilitate the displacement of U.S. workers with cheaper foreign labor.

One of our firm's founding partners, Christine Alden, penned an insightful analysis of this very issue in an op-ed featured in the Miami Herald earlier this month.

In her piece, she argues that while reform of the H-1B visa program is indeed necessary to reflect 21st century realities, these efforts must be undertaken thoughtfully and responsibly, accounting for the invaluable economic contributions made by highly-skilled foreign talent.

"[It] is false choice to say we can’t both protect American workers and bring in the best and brightest from around the world," she writes. "High-skilled immigrants help grow the economy, increase wages for all Americans and are essential to our region’s long-term economic future."

We invite you to read Ms. Alden's commentary in its entirety and share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Furthermore, if you have questions relating to the H-1B visa program or would like to learn more about other employment immigration matters, please consider speaking with one of our firm's skilled legal professionals.
