Why The American Economy Needs to Tap

Into Its Greatest Resource: Its People
There are millions of people just like me here in the U.S. dreaming of starting a company and bringing value to both the American and world economy. Even amidst these sluggish economic times the U.S. remains a beacon of stability in the world economy. Since its founding, the strongest asset of the U.S. economy has been its people. President John F. Kennedy called the U.S., “a nation built by immigrants” and although he was right, he missed a critical follow-on point; the U.S. would not only be built by immigrants, it would be sustained by immigrants.
Though I am not a U.S. citizen yet, I do dream of one day joining this great nation and continuing to contribute to strengthening our economy.
I’m proud that my company, VerbalizeIt, is partnering with FWD.us to help move immigration reform forward. We’ve asked our 14,000+ translators to support comprehensive reform by asking Congress to follow the Senate’s lead and fix our nation's broken immigration system.
If you believe that we need to harness the energy and talent of people like Aditya Agarwal and Ruchi Sanghvi of Dropbox, Steve Chen the co-founder of YouTube or Sergey Brin of Google, join us as we remind Congress of the importance of comprehensive immigration reform.
Thank you for helping make our dreams a reality and continuing to keep America the land of opportunity.
