Immigration reform isn’t just a hot-button policy issue to AOL co-founder Steve Case–it’s “a global battle for talent,” he says.

Now chairman and CEO of the venture capital firm Revolution, Case told msnbc’s Andrea Mitchell Friday that he’s optimistic about the chance of passage on Capitol Hill, and called this “the best environment for passing immigration reform we’ve had in a decade.”

“Immigration is not just a problem we need to solve. It’s an opportunity we need to seize if we’re going to remain entrepreneurial because many of our great companies were started by immigrants,” Case said on Andrea Mitchell Reports.
