Tech Firms Triple Visa Demand


firms have tripled their recruitment of foreign workers this spring
after a hiring lull of several years — a development that is reigniting
the debate over immigration rules affecting those workers.   American
companies sought more than 32,500 temporary H-1B visas, available for
skilled workers, since the annual recruiting period began in April. That
is about triple the number sought by the same time last year.  "The demand for the visas is going up," said Emily Lam of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, a business advocate." – San Jose Mercury News, May 21, 2012.
