Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), AOL founder Steve Case, and University of Virginia President Teresa Sullivan will participate in a roundtable discussion on the impact that admission policies for highly-skilled immigrants have on the U.S. economy.
The discussion is part of a conference hosted by the University of Virginia’s Miller Center.
The focus will be on policies that make it more difficult for skilled professionals, such as engineers, scientists and entrepreneurs, to enter and remain in the U.S.
Sen. Warner is the sponsor of the Startup Act 2.0 that includes several steps to jump start the economy, including creating new opportunities for American-educated, entrepreneurial immigrants to remain in the U.S.
U.Va. President Sullivan is a co-author of “The Dilemma of American Immigration: Beyond the Golden Door" and Case is an advocate for immigration reform.
Alan Murray, deputy managing editor and executive online editor of The Wall Street Journal, will moderate the discussion. Murray is leaving The Wall Street Journal to serve as President of the Pew Research Center, beginning in January.
