"We applaud the bipartisan approach that has been taken to tackle immigration reform. Introduction of this important legislation represents a solid start to finally resolving this long-vexing challenge to our national economy and future. We are especially pleased to see reform to high-skilled immigration included as part of the comprehensive package released by Senators Charles Schumer (D-NY), John McCain (R-AZ), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Bob Menendez (D-NJ),  Marco Rubio (R-FL), Michael Bennet (D-CO), and Jeff Flake (R-AZ).

"Many details have yet to be ironed out but we urge Capitol Hill leaders to sustain this spirit of bipartisanship and reach wide-ranging reforms for immigration that keep high-skilled, foreign-born talent in the U.S. to help drive innovation, build our local economies and move our tech industry forward in this 21st century.

"As supporters of the Startup Act 3.0, we are especially pleased with the inclusion of the creation of the startup visa for foreign entrepreneurs who seek to emigrate to the United States to start up their companies. This new visa category is especially important to the small and medium size businesses that we represent.
