The Top 10 H-1B users received 40,170 H-1B visas in FY 2012 and applied for just 1,167 employment-based (EB) green cards. This is an immigration yield of 2.9 percent.
IEEE- USA supports additional EB green cards for skilled immigrants. These visas allow immigrants to start their own companies and create U.S. wealth and jobs.
"Any plan to increase skilled immigration should be based on green cards," Apter said.
