Immigration Law

STEM Green Card vs. Green Card Lottery

"[T]he green card lottery is reminiscent of what America used to be without a formal immigration program. Immigrants who came to America through the centuries were like the plucky green card lottery winners of today.  They took a chance and came to the shores of America.  They were not scientists or the equivalent of STEM graduates of their day.  Yet, American’s greatness was built on the hard work and boundless optimism of these ordinary people." - Cyrus D. Mehta, Sept. 21, 2012.
