In this article the author discusses U.S. immigration policy and examines ways in which limits on employment-based visas prevents skilled workers from entering into the U.S. workforce. The author argues that allowing more foreign skilled workers into the U.S. could promote innovation and entrepreneurship, which could lead to economic growth. He also comments on how 2012 U.S. presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney lack urgency in implementing such changes.
