The follow is attributed to Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Technology Association (CTA), regarding the White House’s points-based immigration plan:

“We applaud the White House and, in particular, Jared Kushner for tackling the difficult issue of modernizing our outdated immigration system. Points-based immigration systems have proven successful in nations such as Canada and Australia. If we are going to remain globally competitive, our nation needs a smart, skills-based system that makes it easier for us to attract the world's best and brightest. Top talent from around the world should be working, innovating and creating jobs in the United States. We look forward to working with the White House and Congress to strengthen U.S. competitiveness and bring our immigration system into the 21st century.”
