TIA Applauds Introduction of Comprehensive Immigration Reform Legislation

Bill Moves Towards Modernizing High-Skilled Immigration System

ARLINGTON, VA (April 17, 2013) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading trade association for global manufacturers, vendors, and suppliers of information and communications technology (ICT), applauded the introduction of the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013. 

“TIA thanks the members of the ‘Gang of Eight’ for their work on immigration reform,” said TIA President Grant Seiffert.  “The United States needs to modernize its high-skilled immigration system to remain globally competitive, and this legislation represents an important milestone in that process.  This bipartisan framework is the most meaningful effort towards comprehensive immigration reform we have seen in over five years, and we look forward to working with members of both the Senate and the House to improve the bill in the coming days and weeks.”
