The Greater Cleveland Partnership has joined more than 600 business organizations from around the country in signing a letter to House Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy and Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris-Rodgers in support of immigration reform.
The letter said that the undersigned “ are encouraged by the House Republican Conference’s review of “Standards for Immigration Reform.” We support Congress and the Administration moving forward on immigration reform using these Standards as the guideposts for action this year.
“We are united in the belief that we can and must better for our economy and country by modernizing our immigration system. Done properly, reform will deter illegal immigration, protect and complement our U.S. workforce, better respond to changing economic and demographic needs, and generate greater productivity and economic activity, while respecting family unity."
Other supporters who signed the letter include several Ohio chambers and the Great Lakes Metro Chambers Coalition, of which GCP is a member, trade associations, major corporations and labor unions.
