Immigrant entrepreneurs have long helped drive America’s economy. However, bureaucratic restrictions make coming to America to start a new business extremely difficult, and the current proposals to address this are inadequate. A true entrepreneurship visa would permit anyone willing to start a new U.S. business and capable of supporting themselves and their family with that business to do so. Such a visa would reflect America’s tradition of immigrant entrepreneurship and make America the most competitive country in the world for talented and innovative businessmen.
