Getting Rid of Immigrants Would Get Rid of American Jobs

A new study shows that immigrants founded half of the top US start-upChegg companies, further busting the myth that immigration is bad for the US economy.  From this TD Waterhouse article:

Of the 50 top venture-backed companies, 23 had at least one immigrant founder, the study found. In addition, 37 of the 50 companies employed at least one immigrant in a key management position such as chief technology officer.

…and the immigrant-founded companies created an average of 150 jobs.

Do you work for a company started by an immigrant?  If so, let us hear from you in the comments.

(H/T to Paul Hsieh for linking me to the article.)
