WASHINGTON—June 23, 2020—The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) today released the following statement from President & CEO John Neuffer in response to President Trump’s recent immigration executive order. SIA represents 95 percent of the U.S. semiconductor industry.
“The success of the U.S. semiconductor industry requires both homegrown talent and talent from around the world. This is a step in an unhelpful direction for our industry and the U.S. innovation economy as a whole. With the U.S. and global economy facing unprecedented challenges, now is the time to pursue pro-growth policies that enhance the competitiveness of the semiconductor industry, a foundational industry driving growth and jobs across the entire economy. It is simply not the time to block our access to the best and brightest from around the world.”
