Immigrants are Entrepreneurs

This is why I like immigrants:
A study released this week says about 25 percent of the technology and engineering companies launched in the U.S. in the past decade had at least one foreign-born founder.

The study throws new information into the debate over foreign workers who arrive in the U.S. on specialty visas.

The report, based on telephone surveys with 2,054 companies and projections by researchers at the University of California at Berkeley and Duke University, found that immigrants — mostly from India and China — helped start hundreds of companies with estimated sales of nearly $50 billion.

What is the phrase? "More...faster please"?
