Manufacturers: House Immigration Standards an Important Step Forward
Immigration Reform Critical to Growth for Manufacturers in the U.S.
Washington, D.C. , 01/30/14 - Following the release of House Republicans’ immigration standards, National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and CEO Jay Timmons praised this important step forward in enacting immigration reform:
“Momentum is key to enacting immigration reform and the House Republicans’ release of ‘standards’ is an important step forward. Immigration reform is an essential part of building a 21st century workforce and, simply put, it’s the right thing to do. Manufacturers have already joined forces with other business groups, law enforcement officials and unconventional allies like the National Council of La Raza and the SEIU to help make immigration reform a reality. We appreciate the deliberative approach they’ve taken and look forward to continuing to work with policymakers in the House.”
