The National Academies have joined more than 20 other education, science and engineering groups in supporting changes to U.S. visa policy. "Our visa processing system not only must provide genuine security against those who might do us harm, but also keep our borders open to the stream of scientific and technical talent that fuels our progress," the presidents of the academies said in a statement today.
