Why are Google, Facebook & Microsoft CEO’s supporting immigrants.
Google, Microsoft and Facebook push for Immigrant Reform
We currently have about 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S Today. Many would argue that illegal immigration will destroy America, while legal immigration strengthens America. The House of Representatives has 3 alternatives in proceeding with Immigration Reform. First, They can move forward into consideration of a piecemeal legislation, which may or may not mean the open door to legalization and citizenship. Second Option, would be to move forward with their own detailed bill or last, do nothing, let time pass and wait until the next Congress session.
Despite what the House is considering CEO’s of technology companies like Google, Microsoft and Facebook (to name a few) are pushing forward and supporting the bill. Their motivation: Available jobs/positions but no skilled workers to hire. Many Universities are providing Visa’s to International students and simply sending them right back to their countries. Little to none have the actual opportunity to put their education and knowledge to practice in the US and it seems to be at a loss for the US in general.
Could this be a turning point in a decision for a bill that has been “dead on arrival in the House”?
