(VOA News) – The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has announced two proposed regulations designed to attract and retain highly-skilled immigrants.

U.S. businesses use the H-1B visa program to employ foreign workers in jobs requiring expertise in science, engineering, computer programming and other specialized fields.
