PJ's creating jobs, paying taxes, and creating what could be the next great American company. But his visa runs out at the end of June — and his status will be left to an H-1 B visa lottery. Chances are he won't get the visa — and will be forced to take his company, his jobs, and his innovation to Canada. (To learn more about PJ's story, check out LetPJStay.com).
Our broken H-1 B visa system is kicking out thousands of PJs — and the promise of their companies — every year. And existing companies like Google and Microsoft lose key talent that's fueling their latest innovation and growth. All Americans lose when we stifle our economy and reject these innovators.
Tell Congress: fix our immigration system. Support — don't deport — entrepreneurs like PJ. #LetPJStay
