Zuckerberg (Facebook), Houston (LinkedIn) and Others Push for Comprehensive Immigration Reform
Recently, leaders in the tech community hope to keep the United States competitive in the global economy; namely, by advocating for comprehensive immigration reform. As the Gang of Eight prepares to present its Immigration Bill, and with President Obama’s recent change to the procedural aspects of the Hardship Waiver, more and more groups are encouraging Congress to change immigration laws.
FWD.us was created for this purpose (with others in mind) and cites to studies showing that: (1) 57% of engineering graduate students in the US are foreign-born; (2) 40% of the 2010 Fortune 500 companies were founded by immigrants or children of immigrants; and, (3) with comprehensive immigration reform, DREAMers would add approximately $329 billion to the US economy by 2030.
