Read a program summary of this event.

As discussions around immigration reform move forward, one key issue is the economic implications of reform—not just for the immigrant population, but the U.S. overall. Future U.S. competitiveness in the global economy depends on access to talented individuals. How can comprehensive reform contribute to the U.S. remaining an economic leader? How can the contributions of immigrants to our economy be further maximized through immigration reform? Join AS/COA and the Partnership for a New American Economy for a discussion on these issues and more.
