Immigration Stimulus

A Wall Street Journal
opinion piece points out that an infusion of innovators is even
more needed in a recession. "Companies founded by immigrants
include Yahoo, eBay and Google. Half of Silicon Valley start-ups
were founded by immigrants, up from 25% a decade ago. Some 40% of
patents in the U.S. are awarded to immigrants. A recent study by
the Kauffman Foundation found that immigrants are 50% likelier to
start businesses than natives. Immigrant-founded technology firms
employ 450,000 workers in the US."
