From Carlyle Group’s Robert Grady:
Look at all the technology companies which have been backed by venture capital
– the kind of companies which have driven US growth over the past 30 years
or more. It turns out that 40% of them were started by foreign-born
nationals, including the likes of Intel, Yahoo, Sun, and eBay. And,
of course, Google.
And yet we’re still placing ridiculous restrictions on obtaining the H and
J visas that most of these people came into the country on. Idiotic.
