Summary/Abstract: This paper outlines the case for an independent Foreign Worker Advisory Commission (FWAC) to assemble and develop data and research to assist the administration and Congress make better and more timely decisions on employment-based migration (EBM), a relatively small (14% in 2010) component of total immigration. The FWAC also would recommend the numbers and composition of temporary foreign workers (TFW) admitted each year, which constituted about 1.7 million (of 46.5 million) US foreign visitors in 2010.
