With its flawed immigration policies, the U.S. has created an immigrant exodus. This has been bad for the U.S. but great for the world.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 13, 2015
From the tobacco fields of Jamestown to the research labs of the Silicon Valley, foreign entrepreneurs with fresh, creative ideas have forged business and industry to create good, solid American jobs. Indeed, immigration and innovation together are an important part of the American story.
But increasingly, the US is making it extremely difficult for those same entrepreneurs to put their ideas to work here. While American universities attract and embrace some of the world best and brightest, our government repeatedly has failed to create the critically needed legal path that would allow those same foreigners to launch new Startup companies in the U.S.
Seattle-based immigration attorney Tahmina Watson has documented that history and offers a powerful analysis of this debilitating issue in her new book available on Amazon:
Vivek Wadhwa comments, “With its flawed immigration policies, the U.S. has created an immigrant exodus. This has been bad for the U.S. but great for the world—with entrepreneurship booming the world over. Yet many of these entrepreneurs still want to come to Silicon Valley because of its powerful networks and diversity. Getting them here would be a big win for the U.S. and their home countries. The Startup Visa that Tahmina writes about is critical to facilitating this, and her book is a must read for policy makers.”
