Excerpt: As you and your colleagues consider S. 744, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013, we wanted to share our views on this critically important legislation, and provide several recommendations to ensure the many important reforms perform as intended. We applaud the bipartisan sponsors of S. 744 for collaborating together over the past few months, resulting in a comprehensive bill that would truly modernize a broken and outdated immigration system. We strongly believe many reforms in S. 744 that impact high skilled immigration will enable employers of all sizes in every state to recruit and retain the world’s best talent, as well as help reinvigorate U.S. business sectors ranging from energy and manufacturing to medicine and engineering. These reforms are investments in the US economy that support the future of economic growth.
