SEMI supports federal regulations and legislation that promote the semiconductor industry’s ability to train, employ and retain a high-skilled workforce, regardless of nationality. Federal policy initiatives should raise visa caps for high-skilled workers, reverse the declining approval rates of H-1B visas, and promote increased visa access to foreign graduates of U.S. universities in STEM disciplines. High-skilled immigrants and students educated in the U.S. are critical to the workforce of global industries and positively complement the American workforce.

Policies that preclude U.S. technology companies from employing uniquely skilled immigrants, and the elimination of opportunities for foreign-born, U.S.-educated STEM students, are counterproductive to the continued leadership of the U.S. in the semiconductor supply chain.
