New Governent Report: Foreign Science and Engineering Presence in U.S. Institutions and the Labor Force

Foreign Science and Engineering Presence in U.S. Institutions and the Labor Force
Edited by Christine M. Matthews (Paperback, 18 pages, 2010, $15)

The increased presence of foreign students in graduate science and engineering (S&E) programs and in the scientific workforce has been and continues to be of concern.

“White, non-Hispanic students accounted for 71% of all U.S. citizens and permanent residents enrolled in 2000, as compared with 66% in 2007,” reports Information Week. “Unlike graduate student enrollment, where U.S. citizens and permanent residents represent the majority, the majority of postdoctoral appointments (58%) went to temporary visa holders in 2007. Google and other technology companies have argued that more H-1B visas need to be issued so they can hire highly qualified foreign-born workers.”

Enrollment of U.S. citizens in graduate S&E programs has not kept pace with that of foreign students in those programs. In addition to the number of foreign students in graduate S&E programs, a significant number of university faculty in the scientific disciplines are foreign, and foreign doctorates are employed in large numbers by industry.

Recently Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona signed into law SB 1070. According to The New York Times:

It prohibits the harboring of illegal aliens and makes it a state crime for an alien to commit certain federal immigration crimes. It also requires police officers who, in the course of a traffic stop or other law-enforcement action, come to a “reasonable suspicion” that a person is an illegal alien verify the person’s immigration status with the federal government.

This report on federal policy on unauthorized aliens contains: (I) Introduction; (II) Demographics of Unauthorized Population: Period of Arrival; Region of Birth; States of Residence; Demographic and Family Characteristics; Labor Force Participation; (III) Current Law: Restrictions on Unauthorized Aliens: Inadmissibility; Removal; Penalties; U.S. Employment; Other Restrictions; Relief for Unauthorized Aliens: Cancellation of Removal; Adjustment of Status; Registry; Asylum; (IV) Policy Options:Departure of Unauthorized Aliens: Removal; Attrition Through Enforcement; Legal Status for Unauthorized Aliens: Updating INA Provisions; Establishing New Mechanisms: Targeted Population.
