University presidents: Innovation hinges on immigration reform
- In an open letter Tuesday, the presidents of Arizona State University, Cornell University and Miami Dade College urged presidents of other universities and colleges across the U.S. to hold pro-immigration reform events next month.
- The letter reiterated to its 1,200 recipients that current U.S. immigration regulations talented foreign graduates with STEM degrees back to their home countries, where they can't benefit the U.S., and that many qualified foreign-born students are also kept out of universities due to their undocumented status.
- All three officials plan to host events at their own universities on April 19 with help from the immigration advocacy group National Immigration Forum and the Partnership for a New American Economy.
