This article reports that a bipartisan group of U.S. governors sent letters to the U.S. Senate and House urging leaders to take action on immigration reform. The letters urged Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell , Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner to increase the number of temporary H1-B visas available and to increase the number of permanent resident visas, or green cards, handed out to address the shortage of skilled professionals in math and science in the U.S. The authors charge that green card policy in 2007 is impacting the field of technology above all others and the long wait for a card has many talented workers leaving the country.
