John Rutherford files bill for entrepreneurial visa reform


Tuesday saw U.S. Rep. John Rutherford file legislation to reform America’s entrepreneurial visa program, a bill which would create a pathway to legal immigration for “job creators.”

The bill, per a press release from Rutherford’s office, would “allow job creators who have been in the U.S. on an E-2 investor treaty visa for more than 10 years to apply for legal permanent residence [and] allow the children of these visa holders to remain in the country until they are 26 and apply for work authorization.”
