The EU unveiled a blue card plan on Tuesday, aimed to attract skilled, professional immigrants to member countries. Modeled somewhat after green cards in the United States, the blue card calls for the admission of 20 million Asian, African, and Latin American workers within the next twenty years. The immigrant-friendly proposal seeks to re-build Europe’s image as open to immigrants, their potential for economic and professional prosperity, while building up a base of diverse, highly skilled workers in member countries.
