Comment: Losing Global Talent War
CNBC argues that America is losing the global talent war because our broken immigration policy is forcing talented foreign students graduating from American Universities to leave the US.

Immigrants have been at the core of American ingenuity and creativity for as long as the U.S. has existed. There must be a way to harness the unfathomable talent that otherwise gets gift-wrapped and delivered back to the rest of the world. In 2010, 40 percent of the Fortune 500 companies were founded by an immigrant or the child of an immigrant, and in 2011 they employed 10 percent of all American workers. This includes some of the world's most iconic U.S. based companies, from Google and eBay to Comcast, Kohl's, Nordstrom's, Pfizer, DuPont and Goldman Sachs... The US needs to get over its xenophobia and welcome these young people with open arms rather than considering them an acceptable side effect of keeping out the bad guys and freedom haters.

The loss of these talented immigrants is a loss to the immigrants, US businesses and the US economy. It is time to stop this brain drain through comprehensive immigration reform.
