And the pressure keeps on building… Now, 636 multi–industry businesses have joined the Chamber of Commerce, the American people, and a broad coalition of groups from around the nation to demand action from Speaker Boehner on comprehensive immigration reform. A wide range of American businesses recognize that our immigration system is broken and Congress must act to fix it this year. Their letter reads:
“Failure to act is not an option. We cannot afford to be content and watch a dysfunctional immigration system work against our overall national interest. In short, immigration reform is an essential element of a jobs agenda and economic growth. It will add talent, innovation, investment, products, businesses, jobs, and dynamism to our economy.”
So what exactly are Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Cantor waiting for? The excuses have run out, and the pressure keeps mounting. Good luck explaining your inaction, Mr. Speaker.
