    Sen Warner voted "Yea" on S. 744 which passed with 68 Senators in favor. View Vote 06/27/13
  • yes Public Support for Earned Citizenship
    “I was proud to vote today to reform our nation’s broken immigration system. The status quo is a burden on the economy and an impediment to innovation. This bipartisan compromise will grow our economy, reduce the deficit, and continue our proud tradition of offering everyone a fair shot at achieving the American Dream while also strengthening our borders. The Senate’s bipartisan compromise includes several key priorities I have championed, such as new ‘STEM’ and entrepreneur visas for high-skilled graduates of American universities that will promote innovation and help create jobs. Our reforms also provide commonsense rules allowing undocumented immigrants an opportunity to earn citizenship by going to the back of the line, paying back taxes and penalties, and learning English.” View Source 06/27/13
  • yes Public Statements Urging Action
  • yes Public Support for DREAMers
    “Today’s announcement is an important step in the direction of fairness and economic opportunity for the children of undocumented immigrants,” Sen. Warner said. “If the United States is going to win the talent competition in today’s global economy, the last thing we need to do is exclude educated young people who were brought here through no fault of their own. When I was governor, we tried to ensure that DREAMers would have access to in-state tuition at Virginia’s public colleges and universities and I’m thrilled that Attorney General Herring has determined that under law, these Virginians will have access to educational opportunity.” View Source 04/29/14
  • yes Supports Some Form of Legalization for Undocumented Immigrants
  • yes Public Willingness to Consider Immigration Reform
  • no Strongly Opposes Immigration Reform
  • yes Public Support for High Skilled Immigration Reform
    “Smart reforms in the high-skill visa program will help Virginia businesses struggling to find qualified individuals to fill open positions. This bipartisan approach will help Virginia businesses fill this labor gap, and it also will strengthen existing strong, bilateral ties between the United States and Korea,” said Sen. Warner. “Expanding the number of visas for highly skilled Korean professionals will provide direct, valuable contributions to Virginia’s high-tech economy,” said Sen. Kaine. “With continued inaction from the House on comprehensive immigration reform legislation that includes much-needed visa provisions, we must take alternative steps to attract skilled workers from around the globe. There is no resource more valuable than talent, and this commonsense, bipartisan bill will help grow our talented workforce to meet the needs of Virginia businesses.” To meet workforce needs, the United States will need approximately one million more STEM professionals over the next decade than our country currently produces. The bipartisan legislation, S. 2663, The Partner with Korea Act, was introduced by Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA). It would give Virginia and American businesses improved access to highly skilled Korean workers, while also increasing Virginia’s access to the $1 trillion Korean economy. Virginia exports to Korea increased 17.5% in 2013, and highly skilled Korean professionals currently contribute to the U.S. economy in key sectors, including engineering, technology, accounting, health care, financial services and higher education.
