OPT 延期议案需要您的支持!提供高质量的评论才能力挽狂澜!!请行动起来!

OPT STEM 延期议案从17个月变成24个月的事情,想必大家都已经知道啦!但是现在议案处于公示阶段,反对派的声量不断高涨,眼看公示就要结束了,如果任由其发展下去,可能我们就真的无法享受这一政策优势了。希望大家们赶快行动起来,抓住时机哦!!!

另外,一定要嘱咐大家一点,“量”不是最重要的,最重要的是提供观点的“质”、“质”、“质”(重要的事情说三遍),要有足够说服力!!!

事件回顾:

简单来说,就是OPT STEM在新被提交的提案里,不仅没有被取消,还从之前延长的17个月现在修改为24个月!24个月!24个月!(重要的事情说三遍)而且不仅时间有延长,惠及的专业也越来越多,但是具体是哪些专业和具体延长时间都要等真正公示完,决议真正通过才能确定。

通常来讲,在政策提案被提出后,成为真正的议案还要经过公示,一般是30-60天的时间,在这期间,大家可以给移民局寄去对此提案的意见反对或者支持,所以大家的评论也非常重要会成为提案修改的参考哦。

写点什么好呢?!!小编给大家搜了几个案例!

栗子 1:

首先,我拿自己来说,当年出国的时候选择来美国而不是去别的国家的原因就是美国能提供更好的training机会给foreign STEM talents,另外大部分美国的高科技领域都需要foreign STEM students的支撑,如果这个OPT extension突然没了,对很多公司都是个disaster。

I strongly support this new OPT extension rule. I'm an international computer science master student from China and was a software engineer intern at XXX. Before I came to US, I had multiple options to purse my master degree in US, Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong and British. The most important reason I choose to study here is US could provide me the industry training opportunity during school or after graduation. So OPT extension is very important to attract foreign STEM talents. Without this OPT extension rule, I can't believe US could still attract so many foreign STEM talents every year to contribute their knowledge to this country and I probably would choose to study in other countries with better policy to foreign STEM talents. BTW, if this rule is terminated by some reasons, it's definitely a huge disaster to most US high-tech companies, like Google, Apple, Intel, Facebook, etc. Because they are supported by foreign STEM talents. 

第二个就是说12+24个月时间还是挺好的,拿自己以前在公司里的例子来说,很多研究项目都要持续两年以上,如果时间太短了,员工没了VISA,项目就没法做下去了。 
I think that 12 months regular + 24 months extension time is also a good length for OPT program. Based on my previous work experience at XXX, most large research/software development projects would last at least 2 years or more. If the OPT extension time is too short, foreign STEM workers worked on those project would lose their VISA before the projects completion.

最后就是我最后还是想回中国的,如果能在美国干个几年,回国才会有竞争力。
As I'm a Chinese STEM student and was born and living there, I would return back China eventually. Before then, I'd like to apply my knowledge learned from US university to US high-tech industry development. If I have about 3 years work experience in US, I would be competitive in the job market of China. That's why this new OPT rule would benefit both US high-tech industry and international STEM talents.

Hope more people support this good rule!.

为什么来美国留学不去英国留学,就是因为美国毕业了可以有OPT工作嘛,OPT只有1年,吸引力大大下降了
DHS自己都说了,其他国家都在出台类似的手段吸引优秀的国际学生啊,你的政策不好,我们留学生自然还有别的选择,所以【此处应有评论】: 我当时选择美国留学是因为美国的教育与时俱进,而且结合了OPT项目可以让我们可以积攒到实际的industry的experience,没有OPT的美国教育就不一定那么吸引人咯。

Countries such as Canada, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, Taiwan, and China are actively instituting new strategies to attract international students. 

For example, Canada also recognizes that educational institutions need international students to compete in the “global race for research talent.” [35] In April, 2008, Canada modified its Post-Graduation Work Permit Program to allow international students who have graduated from a recognized Canadian post-secondary institution to stay and gain valuable post-graduate work experience for a period equal to the length of the student's study program, up to a maximum of three years, with no restrictions on type of employment. [36] This change resulted in a 64% increase in the number of post-graduation work permits issued to international students in 2008. [37] By 2014, the number of internationalstudents in the program more than doubled its 2008 total. [38] In addition, Canada aims to double the number of international students in the country to 450,000 by 2022. 

申请学校的时候听说是有17个月,有的人已经在17个月的extension中了,现在取消了,你让我怎么办(惨惨惨,你不守信用!)
DHS also recognizes that it must quickly address the imminent vacatur of the 2008 IFR, and the significant uncertainty surrounding the status of thousands of students in the United States. As of September 16, 2015, over 34,000 students were in the United States on a STEM OPT extension. In addition, hundreds of thousands of international students, most of whom are in F-1 status, have already chosen to enroll in U.S. educational institutions and are currently pursuing courses of study in fields that may provide eligibility for this program. Some of those students may have considered the opportunities offered by the STEM OPT extension when deciding whether to pursue their degree in the United States. DHS must therefore act swiftly to mitigate the uncertainty surrounding the 2008 IFR. Prompt action is particularly appropriate with respect to those students who have already committed to study in the United States, in part based on the possibility of furthering their education through an extended period of practical training in the world's leading STEM economy.

3. 工作三年的经验回国才值钱嘛,一年工作回去了身价不涨啊(实情嘛,说的文雅点哈)
