"As home to almost half of the world's LTE subscribers, headquarters for the developers of the world's dominant wireless operating systems and the locus of innovation in the applications market, the United States is at the epicenter of wireless innovation. But this progress – and the tremendous benefits it generates for our economy – is at risk unless wireless carriers, manufacturers and developers can hire enough world-class talent to design the next disruptive service, handset or app.

"By investing in STEM education and ensuring that talent trained here can work here, the Immigration Innovation Act will alleviate this problem and help the United States to remain the world's leading wireless market. We thank Senators Hatch, Rubio, Klobuchar and Coons for their leadership and hope that the full Senate will act soon on this important bill."
