IN THE NEWS | Immigration Ban Worries Hawai‘i Tech Firms

Posted February 5, 2017 in In the News

Design Thinking Strategist Raviraj Pare spoke with Hawaii News Now on President Donald Trump’s pledges to toughen immigration and visa policies. American technology and bio-tech companies worry the travel ban is just the start, and warn the nation’s ability to compete internationally will be crippled if an immigration order bars or limits highly-qualified foreigners from working in the United States.

“It’s a dangerous thing, in terms of stability of work. What will happen?” Pare said.
