US immigration law brings new business owners in Florida

There seems to be an almost constant influx of immigrants in Florida. As in many other states, a lot of the people who come here from other countries of origin have taken steps under U.S. immigration law to launch their own businesses. Becoming a business owner in the United States is a dream many foreign nationals share.

The National Foundation for American Policy conducted a study that concluded that more than half of all billion dollar start-up businesses in the U.S. include at least one and sometimes more than one immigrant founder. Uber, for one, is a Canadian immigrant-owned company. The rocket manufacturing company, SpaceX was founded by an immigrant from South Africa.

 Companies like these definitely contribute to the U.S. economy by providing thousands of employment opportunities and also by supplying products and services to consumers. The estimated collective value of immigrant-owned companies in the United States is approximately $250 million. Many entrepreneurs got their starts through family-based or employment-based visas.

U.S. immigration law is quite complex and new business arrivals in Florida may run into legal status problems even before they have opened their doors to the public. Deportation is one of many serious concerns for many business-owning immigrants. To avoid resident status complications, it is helpful to seek legal guidance before beginning the immigration process; it also helps to stay closely connected to an experienced immigration law attorney even after a business is up and running in case any immigration-related problems arise down the line.
