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.
The US must reform immigration policies so that talent from around the world who come to the US for education and opportunity are able to put down roots, to create jobs and to educate the next generation of talent. We believe that if we do not welcome talent here, it will go elsewhere and the U.S. will fall farther behind.
