US Immigration Policy Is Killing Entrepreneurship

Why is dysfunctional Washington depriving the US of job creators?

U.S. Immigration Policy Is Killing Entrepreneurship. Here's What to Do About It - Forbes: "When we teach our introductory entrepreneurship class at MIT, we take it for granted that each of our 75 students will be able to start an American company upon graduating. But many of them lack one thing they need to be able to do so—permission from the United States government to continue working in our country. In this academic year, three in 10 MIT students, including four in 10 graduate students, are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents. So for them our entrepreneurship class is likely to remain just an academic exercise. Their student visas expire when they graduate, leaving them with two options, to leave the country or find an existing company to sponsor them for a chance at an H-1B visa."

This issue has been around now for years! WTF!
