Comment: Entrepreneurs in Residence - CBS News reports that USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas held an event to launch the new "Entrepreneurs in Residence" program. The report also details the massive problems Silicon Valley is facing due to restrictive immigration laws. "The event held on the campus of the NASA Ames Research Center sought to address a common tech industry complaint: Non-citizens who come to the U.S. to study end up starting companies in their home countries because they say the immigration process has become too daunting. With its new program, Mayorkas said the immigration service hopes to become more responsive to the fast-changing needs of tech startups. He said the agency would ultimately choose five applicants from the private sector to guide policy and training for officials who make decisions on individual immigration applications. The goal, Mayorkas said, is to keep the agency from applying traditional formulas to the unorthodox business models common on the startup scene." Is this merely a publicity ploy, a well-intentioned but ineffective measure, or a notable development? Please let us know your thoughts by writing to us at
