The message is not new . . . immigrant entrepreneurs create jobs, bring in additional revenue, and contribute significantly to the economy. Highly skilled immigrants are vital to the States' innovation activities, spurring further growth. As such, local leaders and advocates recognize the importance of immigrants in their communities and support immigration through local "welcoming" and integration initiatives. Clearly, immigrant entrepreneurs make important contributions throughout the U.S.
Also in the Immigration News, the House of Representatives held Hearings that highlighted similarities between Senate Immigration Bill and House Border Bill. The July 23rd hearing of the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security was about the many differences between the Senate's immigration-reform bill and the House's border-enforcement bill. The hearing was even titled "A Study in Contrasts: House and Senate Approaches to Border Security." While highlighting very real differences between the House and Senate approaches to immigration reform, the hearing inadvertently shed light on the many similarities between the two when it comes to border security. The Congressional recess is looming and it is unlikely that additional work will be done by the House.
In other U.S. Immigration Headlines, it appears to be clear that Immigration Reform is an Imperative for Cities and Metropolitan Areas. Metropolitan leaders from around the country made the case for immigration reform at a recent event hosted by the Brookings Institution's Metropolitan Policy Program. Over 80 percent of the U.S. population, including 95 percent of immigrants, now live in metropolitan areas; cities and towns across the country therefore have a huge stake in passing immigration reform. In fact, panelists agreed that comprehensive immigration reform is an imperative for metropolitan areas. "We need an immigration system that is keeping with the times," stated Audrey Singer, a Senior Fellow with Brookings.
