A Brief History of America’s Immigration Quota System, and Facts about High-Skilled Immigrants

Stuart Anderson has recently authored a piece for Forbes Magazine which discusses the history of immigration quotas and how they have not been updated to meet current needs. In addition, he has provided information about the benefits that high skilled immigrants bring to the United States.

At Nankin & Verma PLLC, we know first-hand what the benefits of immigration are to the United States. From the physician working in an underserved part of Alabama where medical care is not widely available, to the innovative mechanical engineer who has developed novel automobile safety systems in Detroit which keep us safe on our roads, to the computer programmer who has used her entrepreneurial spirit to create a company that employs hundreds in Silicon Valley, our attorneys have witnessed first-hand the benefits of immigration by helping foreign nationals achieve their American dream. A dream that benefits the country they adopt as their own and the country they chose to bring their talents to.

With all the noise about borders and walls, it helps to put the information into perspective, and Mr. Anderson’s article does a fine job. As he states in his conclusion – “[w]hile immigration is likely to remain a controversial topic for years to come, allowing some facts to enter the discussion can never hurt.”
