Statement On The Introduction Of The Immigration Innovation Act

Washington, DC — Internet Association President and CEO Michael Beckerman issued the following statement on the introduction of the Immigration Innovation (I-Squared) Act:

“The internet industry supports the Immigration Innovation Act. One of the biggest economic challenges facing our nation is the need for qualified, highly skilled professionals, domestic and foreign, who can create jobs and immediately contribute to and improve our economy. This legislation will invest in our country’s competitiveness by providing high-skilled foreign workers and people trained in the U.S. the opportunity to stay in the U.S. to help our economy grow. It also promotes American ingenuity by providing additional funding for STEM education. The internet industry commends Sen. Hatch for advancing this important legislation.”
