Following is an excerpt:

Congress and the nation have been involved in soul-searching on the issue of immigration. But no matter what one's political beliefs might be, Wisconsin businesses have a clear shared goal - access to the employees necessary in the 21st century.

In the Capital Region, technology, innovation and world-class ideas are spawning the need for top-notch scientists, engineers, and computer professionals.

In addition, groups of fairly treated immigrant employees are needed to augment the ranks of tough-to-fill positions in manufacturing and service.

Although Wisconsin bucks the Midwestern norm of losing population, it's just barely in that position. While many in the country are thinking philosophy and policy, we need to think about reality.
