Comment: CIR For Jobs
A column in The Tennessean argues that, at its core, immigration is an economic issue, and that to live with our current broken immigration system is like trying to operate a business with the business practices of the sixties.

"A recent study conducted by the American Enterprise Institute and the Partnership for a New American Economy found that for every 100 immigrants who earn advanced degrees in the U.S. and then stay to work in technical fields, 262 jobs are created for other American workers. That means we create more than 2.5 new jobs for every future foreign-born scientist, engineer, doctor or entrepreneur we can attract, train and keep in the U.S. No surprise since 76 percent of patents that the top 10 U.S. patent-producing universities received in 2011 had an immigrant inventor."
Comprehensive immigration reform will result in a more vibrant economy and more American jobs. Please share your thoughts by writing to us at editor@ilw.com.
