Bush Voices Support for Increasing H-1B Quota
President Bush, in late January, voiced his support for an increase in the H-1B visa quota and is urging Congress to take action toward an expansion of the current limiting quotas for this essential work visa. In a meeting with DuPont employees last week, Bush said, “I understand that we need to make sure that when a smart person from overseas wants to come and work in DuPont, it's in our interests to allow him or her to do so. We've got to expand what's called H1B visas.” Bush went on to say that he looks forward to working with Congress to enact this change.
