In this article written by Richard Herman, Richard discusses evolving policy related to highly skilled immigrant reform.

“To welcome high-skill immigrants is to promote a lucrative and little-known phenomenon. While the country was preoccupied with illegal immigrants, legal immigrants were building the New Economy.

The founders of Google, Intel, Yahoo, Sun Microsystems, AST Research, eBay and YouTube are all largely immigrants. New Americans are behind more than half of the high-tech companies in Silicon Valley and about a quarter of the biotech companies in New England.

In a global economy fueled by technology and innovation, high-skill immigrants have become America’s competitive edge. . . ”

What is needed now is a bold regional plan to take this formula for success to a larger scale, particularly targeting markets such as China where the government is encouraging its businesses to expand into the United States. . . ”
