Comment: Idea Incubator - The Mayor of Worcester, MA explains how immigration has fostered the dynamism of his town's economy. "The United States, Massachusetts and our own community of Worcester have long been worldwide economic leaders, home for some of the world's most innovative companies. A surprising number of these companies, including AT&T, Genzyme, U.S. Steel, General Electric, Proctor & Gamble, IBM, Intel, and Apple, were the brainchild of immigrants and their children. We want to make sure that the United States retains its global economic dominance and continues to be an incubator for great ideas. In order to achieve this, however, we need to allow the best and brightest from all corners of the world to work in the United States. We want tomorrow's Vertex, Apple and Microsoft to be founded here in America." Please express your views in our letters section or by writing to us at editor@ilw.com.

ComingsNGoings: Immigration Event
October 21, Washington, DC - Georgetown University is pleased to sponsor the lecture titled "Immigrant Innovation: Patenting, Publishing and Entrepreneurship". Immigrants outperform natives with a college degree on publishing, patents and their commercialization, wages; and in starting a business. This success is due to immigrants who originally entered the United States on a student or temporary work visa, and is explained by their different fields of study and higher level of education. Speaker will be Jennifer Hunt. To RSVP, see http://www.eventbrite.com/event/2300209990.
