Open Doors to Those Who Want to Come to the U.S. to Work

No one better illustrates the need for immigration reform in 2014 than Felicity, a young British engineer who wants to work in California. A graduate with a master's degree in product design engineering from a top UK university, Felicity (not her real name) is working as a paid intern on a temporary visa in San Jose.

During the early 2000s, Congress temporarily raised the quota to 195,000, a number that did not exceed demand, but the quota reverted to 65,000 in 2004.
