Immigrant entrepreneurs create jobs and strengthen the
economy, and the United States should tailor immigration laws and policies to
encourage the best and the brightest to create businesses on U.S. soil, according
to a new report we issued in conjunction with the Immigration Policy Center
(IPC) of the American Immigration Council.
report is unique as it focuses on the positive contributions of immigrant
entrepreneurs at all levels within the economy.
Current immigration laws make it difficult for many immigrant entrepreneurs to
contribute to the nation’s growth. The report provides an in-depth examination
of immigrant entrepreneurship in many different sectors, including
neighborhood, growth, transnational, and science and technology firms, while
demonstrating how these immigrant businesses create jobs for U.S. workers and
contribute to America’s economic growth. The report also contains
administrative and legislative proposals that taken together could create an
atmosphere that fosters growth.
