Australia to Send Us Its Lawyers
Our immigration-phobic Congress passed a law last week exempting Australian professionals from competition over H-1B visas. It created a new class of visa just for them, called an E-3 visa, and authorized 10,500 of them.
So, will we get their tired or their poor? How about their skilled laborers? Guess again.
We're getting their lawyers.
The new program, widely regarded as a reward for Australia's support of President Bush's policies, opens the door to a vast expansion of the number of Australians working in the United States, only 900 of whom received H-1B visas last year.
