Smart immigration strengthens our economy and creates jobs. Immigrants and their children play important roles – from essential workers to founders of fast-growing companies. We need to modernize our immigration system with updated laws that welcome foreign-born entrepreneurs and high-skilled immigrants and provide a permanent solution for Dreamers.

To ensure our nation’s competitiveness and status as a global tech leader, policymakers must adopt immigration reforms that attract the world’s best and brightest – increasing the number of H-1B visas, supporting the International Entrepreneur Rule and instituting a startup visa program to allow foreign nationals to work in the U.S. if they create jobs.

Immigration reform is an opportunity Congress and the administration can’t afford to miss.
