Illinois Republicans for immigration reform
The Hill | March 20th, 2015
Conventional wisdom says immigration reform is dead for this Congress. Fresh from battle scars over Department of Homeland Security funding, some argue the GOP-controlled Congress will not touch immigration for rest of the year. What conventional wisdom misses is a growing chorus of moderate to conservative Republicans – led by our leaders in Illinois – who are advocating for sensible solutions to grow the businesses that we represent, protect both hard working immigrants and create jobs for American workers.
Last week, Illinois Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner, Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), Reps. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) and Bob Dold (R-Ill≥) and former Rep. Aaron Schock joined Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich and the Illinois Business Immigration Coalition to try to move forward the stalemated national immigration debate.
