Statement Regarding TechNet and More Than 180 Companies, Organizations, and Leaders Calling on the Biden Administration and Congress to Pass Immigration Reform
Washington, D.C. — TechNet President and CEO Linda Moore made the following statement regarding TechNet and more than 180 companies, organizations, and leaders calling on the Biden administration and Congress to pass immigration reform. The statement made by a broad coalition of business, civic, law enforcement, faith, and education leaders can be viewed here.
"For four years, TechNet has fervently fought the Trump Administration's radical immigration restrictions, which have been not only detrimental to our economy but against our nation's founding principles and values. TechNet is proud to continue our longstanding advocacy of comprehensive immigration reform and applauds the incoming Biden administration for making this a top priority. We join with business, civic, law enforcement, faith, and education leaders from across the country in calling on Congress to work with the Biden Administration on a bipartisan basis to fix our broken immigration system. TechNet stands ready to partner with the Biden Administration and Congress to reverse the damage of the last four years to restore dignity and decency to our nation's immigration system and attract the best talent in the world to help us rebuild America's economy."
NOTE on TechNet’s Immigration Policy Principles: Throughout America’s history, immigrants have been a source of strength for our country and helped drive the economic growth that has made us the most prosperous and innovative country on the planet. TechNet believes that immigrant innovators, entrepreneurs, and workers are a valued part of our economy and workforce who make important contributions to our nation and communities every day. For example, immigrant entrepreneurs have started more than half (44 of 87) of America’s startup companies valued at $1 billion or more. Federal inaction on immigration reform has harmed the American economy by stifling innovation and stunting job growth. TechNet urges Congress and the Administration to work together to pass broad pieces of immigration reform in the 117th Congress, including proposals that have garnered widespread support from both the business community and the American public.
