WASHINGTON--()--The following is a statement from Steve Case, chairman and CEO of Revolution and co-founder of America Online, on today's meeting with President Barack Obama:
"I was encouraged by today's immigration discussion at the White House. The President and his team listened to numerous proposals, outlined many of their own, and expressed a desire to build a bipartisan consensus regarding comprehensive immigration reform. I focused my comments on the reforms we need to attract and retain the world's most talent innovators and entrepreneurs, as they have been and will continue to be critical contributors to our nation's economic success. I look forward to doing whatever I can to help pass comprehensive immigration reform in the months ahead - and ensure it includes strong provisions regarding high-skilled immigration, so we are positioned to win the global battle for talent."
