ORLANDO, Fla., May 10, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Competitiveness Alliance (ACAlliance), a national organization dedicated to advancing immigration reform that strengthens our economy, will participate in Puerto Rican Summit VII on Friday, May 13 at the DoubleTree at SeaWorld in Orlando, FL. Former Treasurer of the United States and current ACAlliance Co-Chair Rosario Marin will serve as the keynote speaker for a lunchtime roundtable with Florida State Senator Darren Soto.
Marin will focus on the topic of immigration reform not merely as an issue of social justice, but as one of economics – one which is poised to have far-reaching implications for the United States' ability to compete with our economic rivals if we don't correct course.
"New immigration policies play an integral role in maintaining our status as an economic superpower by securing global talent to sustain our economic advantage," said Marin. "The top talent of the world is what creates businesses, invents new technologies, and supports existing infrastructures, and we need to remain the top destination for that talent."
Marin's discussion with Senator Soto will highlight how our knowledge-based economy relies on the talent of highly-educated, skilled workers from around the world to ensure that American companies have the talent they need to remain competitive in the global market, and further, how immigration reform policies stand to enhance growth and create jobs in Florida.
