IN Brief
New Immigration Enforcement Focus in united States

T

HE OBaMa adMINISTRaTION in

august announced a new immigration enforcement strategy designed to focus

more resources on deporting criminals and fewer on cases in which young people were brought to the united States as children by their parents. NaFSa Executive director and cEO Marlene Johnson praised the new direction in a letter thanking President Obama for a positive step forward in reallocating immigration enforcement resources. “Of specific interest to NaFSa is the positive effect the change in strategy will have on young people brought to the country as children,” Johnson wrote. “Raised in the united States, these children are americans in every way that is important. Nothing is gained by detaining or deporting these individuals; in fact, we lose as a country when young people are kept from contributing to our communities and economy. While we often celebrate our history as a nation of immigrants, we also need to embrace the reality that our country is continually enriched by people from all over the world who come to the united States to live, work, and study.” FaQs on the new strategy are available on the u.S. Immigration and customs Enforcement (IcE) Web site at www.ice.gov.

Microsoft Corporation survey of college students’ attitudes related to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) degrees reveals that the majority of students who choose to study STEM subjects do so because they want a good salary, for the job potential, and because they find their degree program subjects intellectually stimulating and challenging. Findings from the online survey of 500 U.S. undergraduate college students, ages 18–24, who are currently pursuing a STEM degree, also showed a big difference in motivating factors for males and females. While male students were more likely to pursue STEM degrees because they enjoy playing with games and toys, reading books, and participating in clubs focused on their chosen subject areas, female students were more likely to say they chose STEM to make a difference. A second survey focusing on parents’ perceptions of STEM education in grades K–12 found that the majority of parents who believe STEM should be a priority said they feel this way because they want to ensure the U.S. remains competitive in the global marketplace. The goal of the surveys, said Microsoft senior vice president Brad Smith, was “to uncover ways to encourage interest in STEM among today’s youth—our future leaders.”
