Our immigration system is flawed, inefficient, and unfit for the twenty-first century. We should be welcoming immigrants who are motivated to improve their lives and contribute to the American project. However, millions of individuals are stuck in indefinite processing, precarious immigration statuses, or excluded by arbitrary quotas and regulations. This deprives us of the cultural, social, and economic innovation that we could collaboratively achieve.
We seek to support social entrepreneurs who understand these systemic problems and can develop ideas for streamlining or improving the U.S. immigration system, removing the barriers that prevent immigrants who are already members of our society from contributing fully, and fostering a culture of mutual benefit.
