Companies Across the US Support Immigration

Companies in all kinds of sectors support immigration

Companies in all kinds of sectors support immigration

The immigration sector is currently a national debate. By this, we refer not only to the border situation and the surge of illegal crossings, but also to legal immigration programs and foreign workforce.

In fact, dozens of American and US-based companies have recently raised their voices, stating that the country urgently needs to attract talent from abroad in order to keep the economy afloat and boost international competitiveness in times of crisis.

Support by local companies for immigration in general has not just occurred during the last few months or overnight, but has been taking place for several years and intensified under the term of Donald Trump (2017-January 2021), who tried to restrict immigration by all means possible.

Let’s look at some specific examples:

  • In June 2020, several internationally recognized companies such as Google, Amazon and Twitter publicly criticized the Trump administration for suspending the issuance of employment-based visas, stating that the tech industry relies heavily on foreign workforce.
  • In December 2020, several FinTech (Financial Technology) companies supported Biden’s win due to his administration possibly improving conditions to access business immigration programs.
  • The largest American companies and several trade associations sent a letter in March 2021, calling on Congress to pass an immigration bill that would open a door to legalization for immigrants who have lived in the US undocumented since they were children.
  • A study released in September 2021 reveals that the vast majority of American companies plan to hire foreign workers now more than ever.
  • The CEO of Domino’s Pizza recently stated that the US needs to welcome more immigrants to meet local market needs.

Why do most companies support immigration?

American companies that support immigration are aware that the country needs the presence of foreigners to overcome the national economic crisis brought on by the global Coronavirus pandemic.

Let’s look at some of the most important facts:

Skilled workforce shortages

The US is experiencing an alarming workforce shortage in multiple market sectors, which was already present even before the arrival of the global pandemic.

As a result, many local companies are unable to meet market needs due to a lack of qualified workers.

Immigration might be the solution to this problem.

Low population growth

The 2020 National Census revealed that population growth between 2010 and 2020 was the lowest in 8 decades.

However, immigration also played an essential role in the last decade’s population growth and may be the solution to stimulate local birth rates.

Abysmal gap between populations

By 2030, 1 in 5 American citizens will be of retirement age. Even if American families decide to have children over the next few years, it will never be enough to address the looming labor shortage.

Therefore, one of the viable alternatives to balance the numbers between the retirement age population and the working age population is to increase immigration levels.
