What's an efficient way to create more jobs in the United States?
Give startup visas to those living outside the country.

According to the Phoenix Business Journal, 1.6 million jobs could be
created by granting visas to foreign business owners over the next 10

The process would be in conjunction with the Startup Act 3.0, which
would grant visas to 75,000 foreigners who already are in the U.S. on
H-1B visas or F-1 student visas.

If these individuals hire at least two full-time employees (family
members don't count) and invest or raise at least $100,000 for their
business in the first year, their visas would be extended for three
years. After three years, if these entrepreneurs have hired, on
average, one additional employee per year, they may apply for a green
card, giving them permanent resident status in the U.S.
Phoenix Business Journal noted that Arizona offers more startup visas
than any other state, which could mean a massive increase in job
opportunities for Arizonans in the coming years.

PHOENIX -- A wanted Arizona sex offender has been captured in Mexico
and handed over to U.S. authorities.

The U.S. Marshal David Gonzales announced Saturday that 49-year-old
Stephen Scott Barnes was taken into custody in Phoenix after a nearly
12 year search.

Authorities say Barnes was released from prison in 1997 after being
convicted of and sentenced to five years in the custody of the
Arizona Department of Corrections for sexual conduct with a minor.
But authorities say he failed to register as a sex offender in
Arizona and fled to Mexico.

Barnes was detained by police in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico last month.
It was unclear if he had an attorney.
