This thesis examines the current trends in skilled immigration to the U.S.: who is coming, why, and what are they doing here? The current competitive environment for attracting these skilled workers among competitor nations like Australia and Canada is assessed, and possibilities for reform that enable the U.S. to attract the right talent, minimize costs to domestic workers, and maintain dominance in international research and development are explored.
