I was invited to testify at a Senate hearing tomorrow in front of the US Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation. Below is my planned testimony.
(update: the video of my initial statement is below and the full hearing video is here)
The immigration reform debate is near and dear to my heart and has whipped up the passions of many in the Innovation Economy, including Mayor Bloomberg, Mark Zuckerberg, and countless others. It feels like, finally, we may get some positive movement on this and I'm honored to have the opportunity to help in any small way I can.

As a son of a German immigrant father, this really hits close to home. I had no idea that T.T. was facing this situation — that’s unbelievable. It’s a bit ironic that our immigration/Visa policies are working directly against the programs that top universities have been enacting to encourage entrepreneurship. I hope everyone in our country can agree that this is a problem we’d best solve sooner rather than later.
