A group from the Silicon Valley went to Washington to lobby for the famous Immigration Innovation Act.

“The trip was organized by the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, which routinely takes delegations of execs from more established local companies to meet with DC policymakers. This time, a total of 12 startup CEOs, local academics and other area business leaders made the trip from Feb. 5-6, meeting with 20 members of the House and Senate and other officials from the Obama administration.”

It is high time that Washington starts understanding the Silicon Valley and the business world. The country is in dire need of talents to move forward in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Being a business group lobby we hope that their input will be considered and appreciated.

Our law firm fully supports the endeavor of this group and hope that soon we will see some good immigration reform taking care not only of the undocumented, but also of the highly-skilled workers.
