I understand that the discussions are still underway.
If they are going to "staple a green card" to advanced degree diplomas in STEM fields from US Universities, will it apply to former graduates too (if so, how far back) or just new graduates?
We do not know the answer to your question yet. Reports are that Congress is expected to introduce their immigration bill soon this month. Once that bill is introduced, we can see the actual language and determine what the specific reform will entail (e.g. if they will "staple" green cards to advanced degree diplomas in STEM fields, and if so, whether it will be applied retroactively.)
It's an exciting time for immigration. Keep current on the news and call an immigration attorney if you have any further questions.
