American Businesses Support Immigration Reform

Posted by

In yesterday’s speech in El Paso, President Obama made clear that reforming our immigration laws will pay enormous dividends for the American economy. And the President has the support of a broad coalition, including the business community.

Entrepreneurs and business leaders across the country support a comprehensive fix to our immigration laws because they know that it will help meet our country’s economic demands and help build a more advanced workforce. In El Paso, the President singled out one corporate titan, in particular:

I mean, one CEO had this to say about reform: “American ingenuity is a product of the openness and diversity of this society. Immigrants have made America great as the world leader in business, in science, higher education and innovation.” You know who that leader was? Rupert Murdoch, who owns FOX News, and is an immigrant himself. I don’t know if you’re familiar with Rupert Murdoch’s views, but let’s just say he doesn’t have an Obama sticker on his car. But he agrees with me on this.

Add your name to stand with President Obama as he calls on Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform.
