"We Are All Immigrants" is a presentation that speaks to the urgent need to align our immigration policy with our job-creation goals. We can create jobs in America --- lots of them---- by flicking the switch and welcoming the job-creators from abroad. Compared to American-born, Immigrants are twice as likely to start a business, twice as likely to invent a new product, more likely have an advanced degree, and more likely to have the linguistic, cultural, and networking skill-set to sell U.S. products and services abroad. Immigrants are America's competitive advantage. It's time we stopped treating them like dirt. I've been talking about this for over 10 years! hoping that someone would listen.... and help save my hometown (Cleveland) and country! I'm an immigration lawyer ---- I know how broken the system is --- and how to FIX IT! I co-wrote a book, "Immigrant, Inc." to tell these stories. I co-wrote the immigration policy for the 30 chambers of commerce from Chicago to Pittsburgh. Awareness is increasing, through programs such as Global Michigan, Global Detroit, Global Cleveland, Global Pittsburgh, and others. NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg is one of the biggest champions of the notion that smart immigration reform can CREATE jobs in America and help revitalize its cities.
