A new federal proposal may make it easier for foreigners to start businesses in the U.S.
The plan, announced Friday, would require foreigners to own at least 15 percent of a new company, among other things. The government is taking public comments for the next 45 days.
The proposal has gained attention throughout the technology industry, which has many foreign-born workers, including several high-profile founders and executives.
Ina Fried of Recode speaks with Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson about the plan, and the issue of immigration in the tech sector.
