  • July 18 - Startup Visa

    Comment: Immigration's good for economy
    The Hill reports that a startup visa that allows immigrants to start businesses in America will increase jobs for Americans.

    A startup visa that allows immigrants to start businesses in America has the potential to create many needed American jobs and boost GDP growth. A Kauffman Foundation analysis of one proposal in Congress to enact a startup visa found that it could create up to 1.6 million new jobs for Americans over 10 years and add an additional 1.5 percent to economic growth. This estimate, derived from historical data on employer firm creation and survival, plus Census Bureau statistics on job creation, is considered conservative.
