Whether it’s Google, Microsoft, or Starbucks, individuals have arrived and made a substantial difference,” noted the Ambassador.

Garcetti expressed, “No two nations can collaborate better, complementing each other’s weaknesses with strengths, showcasing a model of democratic values placing people at the core of this technological revolution.”

“Technology should safeguard rather than endanger us,” he remarked.

According to economists Wendy Edelberg and Tara Watson from the Brookings Institution’s Hamilton Project, a study found that in the last two years, new immigrants bolstered the US labor force, enabling job creation without causing overheating or inflation acceleration.
