Public Description:  

H.R. 2181, the STAPLE Act, would issue green cards (exempt from existing numerical limitations thereby increasing legal immigration) to foreign citizens who graduate from a U.S. institution with a Ph.D. in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) and are offered employment by a U.S. company. The bill would also exempt these same foreign workers from the H-1B visa numerical limits.
