Excerpts from "The Implications Of Immigrant Entrepreneurship"

"The fact is that legal, skilled immigrants are contributing significantly to the U.S. economy, have created more jobs than all the numbers of such skilled immigrants we have admitted over the last decades, and are helping the U.S. keep its global lead,"

"Immigrant-founded companies accounted for a large portion of the total in the key technology centers, including Silicon Valley (52%), New York City (44%) and Chicago (36%), according to the research. Immigrant founders scored the lowest in other technology clusters like Portland, Ore., (18%), Research Triangle Park (19%) and Denver (19%)."
