Immigrants bring a lot to the American economy

On Behalf of | May 30, 2019 | Employment Immigration |

Despite being constantly under scrutiny by the current administration, immigrants in the Miami area and across the U.S. are helping the American economy. Many in Miami are immigrants and are in the country to create a better life for themselves and their families. Many immigrants want to come to the U.S. for a job and need to obtain the necessary visas for employment immigration.

According to a recent story, although immigrants are 14 percent of the U.S. population they have started a quarter of new businesses in the U.S. They have also earned over a third of the Nobel prizes for science. In addition, over 70 percent of tech workers in Silicon Valley are immigrants. Of the biggest tech companies in the U.S., 60 percent were founded by immigrants or their children. These numbers are proof that immigrants bring a lot to the U.S. despite the current political climate which continues to portray immigrants as a group of people who just take advantage of public resources.

Immigrants come to the U.S. for many reasons. But when they arrive they are often valuable members of our society. Immigrants who need help obtaining a visa in order to work in the U.S. may want to speak with a legal professional who specializes in immigration. An attorney can help their client with their employment immigration needs as well as help an employer attract and keep amazing international employees. An attorney understands the needs of both an international employee and an employer who needs these workers to grow and sustain their business. An attorney can work to obtain an appropriate visa for employees so that they are able to live, work and thrive in the U.S.

Immigrants are the backbone of U.S. society despite the current political climate. It is important for all Americans to realize the substantial impact they have on the economy.
