Immigrants Are The Job Creators

"Immigrants represent 13% of the U.S. population but account for nearly 20% of small businesses owners...Immigrants also launch half of the nation's top startups, and research by the Kauffman Foundation has established that startups account for virtually all net new job creation. A study by the National Foundation for American Policy found that of the top 50 venture capital-backed companies in the U.S. last year, 23 have at least one foreign-born founder, while 37 have at least one immigrant in a major management position." John Dearie and Courtney Gedulig in The Wall Street Journal.
