Chamber of Commerce, AFL-CIO Announce Shared Principles for Immigration Reform

February 21, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the AFL-CIO released a statement of principles on immigration reform. The following quote can be attributed to Ali Noorani, Executive Director of the National Immigration Forum:

"Today's announcement by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and AFL-CIO confirms that we are on track to pass bipartisan immigration legislation this year. All of the pieces of the immigration reform puzzle are falling into place — on and off Capitol Hill. When labor and business move forward in a unified fashion, their power to move policies for the American worker and the American economy is a game changer.”
