Arizona State University
September 17, 2012

ASU President Michael Crow added his name to the signatures of 164 other university presidents and chancellors in a letter urging U.S. President Barack Obama and all members of Congress to provide green cards to foreign-born students who earn advanced degrees in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.

The letter, dated Sept. 13, includes leaders in higher education from all 50 states, and calls for much-needed reform of antiquated U.S. immigration laws that ultimately send away highly skilled, trained and educated job creators, once they graduate from American universities with advanced degrees, to go work for U.S. competitors in other countries.
