A Movement Towards Start-Up Immigration Reform

Immigration reform is so critically important to the start-up communities as the current visa options that exist for entrepreneurs to enter on nonimmigrant visas and move towards permanent resident green cards are extremely difficult to navigate at this point in time. A lot of this has to do with outdated visa options that have not been updated to understand the current business realities of modern start-ups, particularly in the tech industry.

This has been a long fight and is nowhere near its end although it shows definite progress and understanding that something needs to be done.
