CFGI & SHRM Make the Economic Case for Immigration Reform

8/3/2016
CFGI


CFGI, SHRM and twelve other groups have joined the Partnership for a New American Economy in releasing 51 new research reports, laying out how reforms to our immigration system would benefit the economy at the federal, state and local levels. The reports - one for every state and the District of Columbia - emphasize the contributions of high-skilled professionals, essential and other immigrant workers. 

CFGI’s Lynn Shotwell said, “These reports are evidence that decades of inaction on immigration reform have held back America’s economic growth.  The Administration and Congress must work with employers on bipartisan solutions to fill existing skills gaps and build a 21st century workforce that draws on both domestic and foreign talent.”
