WASHINGTON – Today, global tech trade association ITI issued the following statement welcoming the decision in Purdue v. Scalia. ITI joined the case as a plaintiff.
“U.S. employers rely on the ability to recruit and retain the most talented individuals to stay competitive globally,” said Karolina Filipiak, Senior Director, Government Affairs for ITI. “These high-skilled workers – many of whom are born outside of the United States – make the United States and the entire innovation economy stronger. Today’s decision gives the business community the ability to participate in the rule and policy-setting process to ensure we can effectively meet the desirability and ability of high-skilled foreign-born professionals to be employed in the United States. We look forward to working with the U.S. Congress and the incoming Biden Administration on much-needed additional reforms to the U.S. immigration system to protect and support American workers.”
