NAM calls on Congress to take action on immigration reform
A press release (11/21) from the NAM following President Obama’s announcement of executive action on immigration highlights a statement made by NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “Today’s announcement further underscores that congressional action is critically needed on immigration reform. Voters overwhelmingly cast their ballots on November 4 for a Congress that will end the gridlock and address the tough issues facing this country. Congress shares the responsibility of governing, and manufacturers are counting on our leaders to end the uncertainty by fixing our broken immigration system. For manufacturers, immigration reform is a competitiveness issue that impacts our ability to grow in the United States. Without reform, we will fall behind in an increasingly competitive global economy as other nations offer a more inviting environment for innovation.”
The NAM also released a video on immigration reform which can be found here (11/21).
