Throughout our history, America has had the opportunity to grow and thrive because we have attracted and welcomed the most talented and the hardest working people to our shores. But today our immigration system is broken and failing to meet the needs of our society, our economy, our businesses, and our workers.
Commonsense immigration reform would boost economic growth, create jobs, and spur innovation and entrepreneurship. And it would renew America's legacy of being an open and welcoming country where anyone who works hard can achieve his or her dreams.
America cannot compete and win in a global economy without the world's best talent, hardest workers, or biggest dreamers. An outdated and inefficient U.S. immigration system has created too many barriers for individuals seeking the opportunity to work hard and contribute to our economy. If they can't put their dreams to work here—creating growth, driving productivity, attracting investment, and spurring innovation—they will do so in the economies of our competitors.
The United States needs immigrants. They bring entrepreneurial energy that creates jobs for all who live in America. They help fill gaps and labor shortages in our workforce, which in turn protects American jobs‹because if companies can't find all the workers they need here, they will be forced to the move the work somewhere else. Immigrants can also help address our demographic realities and reduce the federal deficit by paying into the system.
To help advance reform, the Chamber is a leader in a broad coalition of supporters that spans industries and includes labor, law enforcement, the faith-based community, and ethnic organizations. The Chamber is leading the charge for commonsense reforms that include:
Though there may be several different approaches to fix our system, meaningful and lasting reform can only be achieved through bipartisan legislation.
Immigration reform is a key component of the U.S. Chamber's Jobs, Growth, and Opportunity Agenda - an ambitious plan to generate stronger, more robust economic growth, create jobs and expand opportunity for all Americans.
