In this week’s Immigration Law for Tech Startups podcast, I am joined by Stuart Anderson, the Executive Director of the National Foundation for American Policy (NFAP), a nonprofit research organization that focuses on trade, immigration, and related issues. He specifically talks about some changes in the U.S. immigration policy as well as the most important changes needed to fix some of the most important problems today.

Stuart helped create AC21, which has impacted the lives of millions of immigrants, especially from China and India, to have more stability and security for their families so they can continue to add value to the United States and have more peace of mind. Aside from being a senior contributor to Forbes magazine, where he covers immigration news, Stuart also wrote the book Immigration (Greenwood Guides to Business and Economics).
