(AP) The Obama administration's top immigration official says his agency is working to attract and keep more foreign-born high-tech entrepreneurs who are seeking to start a company in the U.S.


U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service Director Alejandro Mayorkas says his agency has not been especially nimble to adapt to fast-paced changes in the business landscape.


He says that's changing since the agency added new training for staffers who evaluate business visa applications.


Mayorkas spoke Wednesday at the Sloan School of Management of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He unveiled a new website that provides entrepreneurs an easier way to navigate their immigration options.


Next step? A review of existing laws and practices to ensure that they achieve their full potential.


But Mayorkas adds that is no substitute for legislative reforms.
