HP Praises “Immigration Innovation Act”

Company calls bill an important step to ensure America retains and attracts the world’s best and brightest

PALO ALTO, Calif. — HP today issued the following statement by Gregg Melinson, vice president, Global Government Relations, HP:

“We appreciate the leadership of Senators Hatch, Klobuchar, Rubio and Coons in addressing our nation’s growing need for more qualified, highly skilled professionals—domestic and foreign. The ‘Immigration Innovation Act,’ or ‘I-Squared,’ is a significant step forward in ensuring that the U.S. economy has the workforce and intellectual capacity it needs to enhance innovation, spur job creation and improve our economy.

“I-Squared is a common-sense solution that meets the needs of our high-tech economy without harming domestic employment. It also provides needed funding for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education programs targeted at helping American residents get the skills companies need to be more innovative and globally competitive.

“Smart immigration reform is essential to America’s economy, security and traditions. I-Squared is exactly the kind of reform that will safeguard America’s economic prosperity by attracting and retaining the best minds in America and from around the world.”
