An article by Bill Hammond, CEO of the Texas Association of Business, recently appeared in the El Paso Times. “Immigration Reform a Key Step to Creating Jobs in the U.S.” explains an economic imperative for immigration reform.

Hammond stresses the importance of keeping highly-trained STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) students in the United States after they graduate from college. He also references a recent joint study by American Enterprise Institute and Partnership for a New American Economy that found that the average foreign graduate who stays and works in a STEM field creates 2.62 American jobs.
