Many U.S. employers have discovered the international labor market, a rich and vast source of talented and highly-qualified employees. And the U.S., a nation of immigrants, continues to attract people from other countries who want to avail themselves of either temporary or permanent employment opportunities here. But the extremely complex and volatile U.S. immigration system, with its incomprehensible laws and regulations and arcane processes, serves as a source of frustration to all who encounter it and a barrier to many.
