WHITE HOUSE Staff
America has always been a nation of immigrants, and throughout the nation’s history, immigrants have kept our workforce vibrant, our businesses on the cutting edge, and helped to build the greatest economy. In addition to giving a significant boost to our national economy, commonsense immigration reform will also generate important economic benefits in each state.
The new state by state reports detail how immigration reform would strengthen the economy and create jobs in all regions of our country.
This week, the White House released a new report detailing the important benefits provided by the bipartisan Senate immigration reform bill for the domestic agriculture sector, its workforce, and rural American communities.
The report highlights the ways in which the agriculture industry is hampered by a broken immigration system and how immigration reform with a path to earned citizenship would strengthen agricultural and rural communities.
Finally, it underscores the need for action on immigration reform in the House of Representatives.
To learn more about the new reports, join us on Friday at 12:30pm for a conference call with Gene Sperling, Director of the National Economic Council, and Cecilia Muñoz, Director of the Domestic Policy Council, for an overview of the new State-by-State economic data and the importance of making your voice heard during this critical time in the immigration reform debate.
Host a Roundtable
President Obama is calling for a national conversation on immigration reform that builds a bipartisan consensus to fix our broken immigration system so it works for America’s 21st century economy and security needs, but he can’t do it alone. That is why we are asking you and other Americans, including business leaders, faith leaders, law enforcement leaders and all Americans that understand that we cannot continue to live with the broken system the way it is – to continue the conversation in your community by hosting a roundtable.
