Recently the US government is frequently discussing policy to prevent international students and scholars, especially those from Mainland China, from being involved in sensitive majors and subjects. All these affairs greatly harmed international students and scholars’ feelings, and are regarded as kinds of discrimination. Most people agree that this will do harm to the American economy and science research.

For example, Dr. Henry, who is interim tech manager for http://www.web4order.com (a large scale online super market), was delayed for his visa for six months in China before he graduated. The reason he went back China was to get married with his fiance. His major was Computer Science and was not in a sensitive major. This indicates that even though consideration is said to be confined in sensitive area, actually its effect has been greatly widened. Similar cases appeared frequently and greatly affected study and research performed by the international students and scholars.

The US Citizenship and Immigration Services Office (US CIS) greatly deferred processing Chinese immigrants’ applications. Many of them have to turn to Canada and European countries, where are opening their arms to welcome such immigrants, most of whom have obtained advanced degrees and have become very skillful in scientific research. The trends of American immigration policies have raised doubt about its continuity. People believe such policies will eventually cause shortage of talents in science and technology and will lose the war in competing with Europe, Australia, and other countries.
