Kaine Talks Technology in Reston Visit

U.S. Senator Tim Kaine (D-Va.) stopped by Oracle's Reston office on Monday to to discuss his efforts to help technology businesses grow and how he is working on a solution to enable talented tech workers to remain in the United States.

Kaine has advocated comprehensive immigration reform as way to attract talent to Virginia businesses and has  voiced support for the bipartisan Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act that was introduced last week by a group of eight senators.

Kaine has also cosponsored the I-Squared Act that would expand visas for trained professionals seeking to work in the technology sector.

 Kaine also had the opportunity to meet with Wounded Warriors who were participants in an internship program at Oracle in Reston.
