The United States is a nation of immigrants bound together by the American ideals of individual freedom and responsibility and driven by the limitless opportunities of free enterprise.
These powerful draws of freedom and opportunity have brought the world’s best and brightest to our shores for generations.
Today, as we face a sluggish economic recovery and persistently high unemployment, immigrants can strengthen our efforts to grow the economy, create jobs and keep America competitive. But to truly leverage the talent, energy, ideas and hard work of immigrants, we must adopt rational reforms to our immigration system. What’s at stake if we don’t? Innovation, growth and jobs.
