American IT industry for raising cap on H-1B visas
In the US there are more than 545,000 tech jobs which are vacant in the US and having a very deep impact on the Silicon firms which are valley-based. During the argument the American IT industry said that in order to raise the cap on the H-1B visa it is necessary to attract the bright minds throughout the globe. 

Throughout the economy of the US, the traded industries growth and power innovation has advanced the Silicon Valley.

Robert Atkinson, who is the president of the information technology and innovation foundation, stated that the access for the skilled workers being stopped is like tying their one hand at their back but still wanting them to work. 

In addition, he also stated that more than 545,000 jobs are still not filled just because of the educated workers, those who are in highly skilled positions in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics called as the STEM.

More than 65,000 people said that the H-1B visas are mandatory and the US grants extra 20,000 H-1B visas for those individuals who get an advanced degree from an educational institute of US.

He also wrote that the impact of the shortage of STEM and a less H-1B visa cap is not good for the Silicon Valley. More than the ten percent petitions of the H-1B visas throughout the nation have been filed by the region.

During this year’s lottery in order to allot the scarce visas, petitions more than 15,000 visas were filed by the companies in the Silicon Valley are to be rejected. This will allow in forfeiting the region’s opportunity for the growth in the industries which are advanced.
