A number of businesses and education groups have joined together to try to persuade Congress to raise the number of skilled foreign workers allowed into the United States in H-1B status this year. The coalition calls itself Compete America, and its members are drawn heavily from the technology industry. Compete America sent a letter to each member of Congress, calling for an increase in both the number of H-1B visas and the number of employment-based green cards given to foreign workers. Compete America would like to see the number of H-1B visas increased for the current fiscal year.
