I heard that Jeff Flake, Republican Congressman from Arizona mentioned those foreign nationals having completed PhDs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) would be eligible to directly apply green card.

So I just wonder if there is any update on this issue?

There is a legislation in congress called “Stopping Trained in America PhDs from Leaving the Economy (STAPLE) Act (HR 1791)”. It was last referred to the Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security, and International Law in April of 2009. We are not aware of any action on this legislation yet.
