ITIF applauds the intention of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s proposed rule to amend regulations implementing its discretionary parole authority for entrepreneurs engaged in start-ups with high growth potential. Such a rule, if crafted appropriately, could help boost U.S. global economic competitiveness. Unfortunately, as currently written, the rule could be applied to individuals and companies that would have negligible impact on U.S. job growth, innovation, and productivity.
