Public Description:  

S. 1918, the Strengthening America’s Workforce Act, would create a new visa category, the H-2C visa, for willing workers. The legislation could potentially skyrocket foreign-worker importation by exempting from any numeric limit foreign students with advanced degrees in math, science, technology, and engineering and the immediate relatives of employment-based immigrants.
