Why do we send our brightest foreign college grads back home?
dblacharski 2 years ago
College graduation is upon us once again, and thousands of foreign students are now wondering whether or not they will get a shot at the "American dream" they've heard so much about over the course of their college careers. It is the very peculiar policy of the US to invite some of the brightest young people in the world to come here and study at some of the finest universities in the world, and once they receive an excellent education, we tell them to go back home. Why should it be so difficult for a recent foreign grad to stay here and contribute to our economy? These are people who will go on to do great things, start new companies, and hire thousands of employees. The question, it seems to me is, shouldn't we have a national policy of encouraging them to stay here, so our nation's economy can enjoy the economic benefits they would create, rather than forcing them to go back home and promote that growth somewhere else?
