Action alert

Dear Congressman Doyle,

I am an American citizen and voter residing in Pittsburgh.  As a student at [the best school ever], I am surrounded many amazingly talented international students.  These students often obtain Masters or Ph.D. degrees after several years of study in the U.S., and yet, upon graduation, these fantastic individuals often find themselves facing the possibility that they must leave the U.S. due to difficulty in obtaining a green card.  We stand to gain enormous benefits by encouraging these students to stay and make their careers in the U.S. instead of forcing them to take all that expertise back home.  I hope you will support any immigration reform measure that makes it easier for international students with advanced degrees to obtain green cards and citizenship.

Sincerely,
[The Freakwenter]
