CompTIA asserts that the immigrant contribution to the US is undeniable, and high-skilled foreign immigrants continue to drive substantial economic growth. More than 40 percent of Fortune 500 companies in the U.S. were founded by immigrants or their children, and these firms employ more than 10 million people worldwide.
