A coalition of U.S. business interests -- including representatives of the technology industry -- is pushing for changes to immigration law that would make it easier for foreigners who launch startups in the U.S. to stay in the country and run their businesses. The group is lobbying for passage of the Startup Act 2.0, which would add a type of visa for foreign-born entrepreneurs who raise at least $100,000 in working capital and put a minimum of two Americans to work at their companies within the first 12 months of obtaining the visa.
