WASHINGTON, D.C. – Sens. Orrin Hatch and Jeff Flake, R-Arizona, issued statements Tuesday after underscoring the importance of passing the Immigration Innovation, or “I-Squared,” Act in a Senate judiciary committee hearing on high-skilled immigration.
“In our global innovation marketplace, America cannot afford to continue to lose the talent we educate and train to our competitors,” Hatch said. “While opponents may attempt to question the need for high-skilled immigration reform, the facts prove otherwise. Our I-Squared bill is essential to creating American jobs, fueling our economic recovery, advancing our 21stcentury workforce, and maintaining America’s position as the world’s brightest beacon of innovation.”
