Comprehensive Immigration Reform 2013-STEM provisions

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.
