Breault Research Organization hosted a gathering of 40 optics-industry representatives, as well as U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, on the topic of high-tech worker visas. Industry leaders said that capping the number of visas at 65,000 means the vast majority of U.S. university-educated foreign nationals must return to their native countries to find work. Giffords used the occasion to announce that she would introduce visa-reform legislation by the end of the year. Copyright Arizona Daily Star, Nov. 29, 2007. All rights reserved.
