'Hoops to jump through' cause frustration for high tech workers

A recent story in the Washington Post highlights just how frustrating U.S. immigration laws can be for many people. The article tells us about two postdoctoral mechanical engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, one of the most distinguished schools in the country, who face expiring visas, hoops to jump through, and an invention that could change the face of energy technology and water-decontamination.

The two engineers may be forced to move back to India to start their company, which they say could create 100 jobs right from the start. Many immigrants face frustrations similar to these, no matter what industry they work in or what their level of education. Immigrants have skills that are desired by companies in the United States, but immigration loops often prevent people from receiving visas to stay in the country.

Speaking with an experienced immigration attorney can help those who face expiring visas and deportation understand their situation and work to keep them in the country. Many immigrants want to remain in the United States legally and can contribute in many different ways, but will be forced to start businesses and help other economies, if laws don't change.

The two engineers from MIT have received calls from investors all over the world offering them opportunities to start their business in different countries, although their primary market is the oil industry in the United States. These issues can often be complex and hard to understand. Immigration attorneys understand the process relating to visas and immigration law.
