On May 9th, former U.S. national security officials sent a letter to the U.S. Congress, proposing Congress to loosen immigration restrictions on foreign talent in order to strength U.S. leadership in science and technology industry.

The letter said that Communist China had become a major rival in the areas of technological and geopolitical. If the United States wants to stay ahead of the competition, it can only maximize the attraction of prominent scientific and technological talents around the world. The United States has been in the leading position because of its solid foundation in science and technology. Two-thirds of the United States’ scientific and technological talents come from other countries. Although Communist China is also attempting to attract global talents, the natural attraction of the United States is still remain the most desirable place for the best talents in the world, which China cannot replicate.

Under the current U.S. immigration system requirements, tech talent have to wait up to 10 years to obtain green card, causing these talent to head for other options. The 2021 report shows that the U.S. human capital is the most vulnerable part in the supply chain, as TSMC was forced to delay the construction of its Arizona factory due to a lack of professionals. Although the United States Innovation and Competition Act of 2021 already exempted the cap for foreign talent to obtain green card, the U.S. still needs a reformation compared to Communist China’s talent-grabbing program in less than a decade, this is a priority in terms of national security. The talents that leave the United States could to go to its competitors such as Communist China, posing a threat to the United States national security. The official urged the United States to increase visas allocation for foreign high-skilled talent.
