Commentary by Forum President and CEO Rob Nichols: "There are a number of things that can be done to spur economic growth, but making real progress on immigration reform, tax reform, debt reduction, and further trade liberalization will create the growth America needs."
“We are encouraged by the progress U.S. policymakers have made toward achieving comprehensive immigration reform today. A much-needed update of U.S. immigration policies will help strengthen our national security, increase our economic growth and international competitiveness, and attract and retain the best talent to the United States. "
“We are very pleased that both President Obama and a bipartisan group of members in Congress are bringing a variety of reasonable ideas to the table regarding reform of our nation's broken immigration system.
