Is America brain draining the third world? #8

United States Resettlement Program and the Green Card visa Lottery have helped hundreds of thousands of people from developing countries to settled here permanently. But there is growing debate among leaders of developing countries whether or not these programs are not a brain drain on the developing world especially Africa. This interpretive story will wegh in on the debate by looking at the demographics of resettle immigrants in the United States, where they work, and who benefit. To do this, three experts from three top American research instituions will be interviewed. What can be done to stop this labor migration to the developed world especially the United States? Who really is benefiting - America or the the developing countriest?.
