Our nation's greatest competitive advantage has always been our ability to attract the best and the brightest from around the world, including the many immigrants who have started businesses here, growing our economy and creating American jobs.
Unfortunately, our badly broken and outdated immigration system doesn't reflect modern reality. As we inevitably run out of H-1B visa applications in the coming days due to overwhelming demand, we're reminded that our dysfunctional system tells many talented immigrants that we don't welcome their contributions, and that they might as well go start their companies and create jobs elsewhere.
That's no way to keep the United States competitive in a global economy, and it serves as another reminder that the time is now for House Republicans to act on meaningful immigration reform that does right by American families and boosts the American economy.
