Australian Foreign students to get two to four years of Post Study Work Permit

A move being resisted by local unions, much to the amusement of foreign students, The Australian government will relax immigration rules next year to allow all foreign students who graduate from Australian universities to be eligible for work visas lasting two to four years.

The new rules would
potentially allow all 220,000 foreign university students in Australia to work in any job once they graduate in an attempt to curb the labour shortage and to boost Australia's education exports

Under the current
system, only graduates who have studied for a skilled occupation - including the trades, medicine, engineering, architecture, accounting and teaching - may work in Australia for up to 18 months. Other foreign students must leave Australia within a month of graduation.

But, from next year, visas will be granted to all graduates regardless of their field of study. The 18-month time limit will also be extended to two years for graduates with a bachelor degree, three years for a master's degree and four years for a doctorate, the report said.

Visa holders will need "competent English" and health insurance, besides having to pass health, character and security requirements. Immigration Minister Chris Bowen said the expansion of the Skilled Graduate visa scheme would "help to enhance the competitiveness" of Australia's A$18 billion (S$23 billion) inbound student industry.

The Australian Council of Trade Unions, the largest peak body representing workers in Australia, and the Construction Forestry Mining and Energy Union (CFMEU), lobbied the Immigration Department last year against expanding student work permits. CFMEU construction division national secretary, Mr Dave Noonan, criticised the new rules.

"There are some very serious job losses in the construction industry," he said, adding: "There is already significant exploitation of workers under student visas and this will probably see that increase." Agencies

Talented young illegal immigrants can stay in US: Obama

In an election-year move hailed by South Asian, Latino and other immigrant organisations, President Barack Obama announced that his administration will stop deporting talented young illegal immigrants if they pose no criminal or security threat.

The changes caused by his executive order will make immigration policy "more fair, more efficient and more just," he said in a White House address Friday afternoon to praise from Latino leaders but outrage from opposition Republicans.

"This is not amnesty. This is not immunity. This is not a path to citizenship. It's not a permanent fix," Obama said answering his critics. "This is a temporary stopgap measure."

Noting children of illegal immigrants "study in our schools, play in our neighbourhoods, befriend our kids, pledge allegiance to our flag," Obama said, "It makes no sense to expel talented young people who are, for all intents and purposes, Americans."

Under the new policy, people younger than 30 who came to the United States before the age of 16, pose no criminal or security threat, and were successful students or served in the military, can get a two-year deferral from deportation.

It also will allow those meeting the requirements to apply for work permits, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said.

The change is part of a department effort to target resources at illegal immigrants who pose a greater threat, such as criminals and those trying to enter the country now, she said.

Republicans who have blocked Democratic efforts on immigration reform immediately condemned the move with Obama's likely Republican presidential opponent Mitt Romney saying the issue needs more substantive action than an executive order, which can be replaced by a subsequent president.
But members of the National Coalition of South Asian Organizations (NCSO), a network of 42 organizations, applauded Obama's announcement.

"South Asian youth and families stand to benefit from this change in policy, given that individuals from South Asian countries are among the one million undocumented students in the United States," it said.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization, also welcomed Obama's decision.

The move addresses a major concern of the Hispanic community which has been upset over an overall increase in deportations under Obama with some 400,000 illegal immigrants removed last year, the largest in US history.
