Pushing for Foreign Students to Stay in America

Listen
AIR DATE: October 19, 2011

Nearly 700,000 foreign students study on US campuses.  While most take their skills back home, the Obama administration wants to keep them here - for academia and for future jobs.  Why are local employers so eager to hire foreign nationals?  How do they feel it improves their employee pool?  And what policy changes would they like to see to keep more foreign workers here?  We talk to a reporter and an employer about hiring internationally.

GUEST
Jill Replogle, KPBS reporter, Fronteras: The Changing Americas Desk
Seema Patel, former international student and research tech, UNLV
