Immigration

One of the reasons America leads the world in economic development and technology is that the best and brightest choose to come to the United States to attend graduate school and to start businesses.

"Since 2000, immigrants have been awarded 40 percent, or 31 of 78, of the Nobel Prizes won by Americans in Chemistry, Medicine and Physics, according to research from the National Foundation for American Policy."

Elon Musk is an excellent example. He came to the US for his last two years of University and his PhD. He has founded several companies, including PayPal and Tesla, that have brought useful technology and substantial economic development to the United States. The more immigrants like this, the better.
