Texas business sector seeks amendments to federal immigration laws

Posted on April 8th, 2014 No Comments

The business sector in Texas has been clamoring for changes to be made to federal immigration laws. Recently, several major trade associations joined the Partnership for a New American Economy, seeking to promote these changes and create a bigger legal immigrant pool from which  to pull a workforce.

Texas Restaurant Association chief executive officer Richie Jackson said Congress should rationally address the immigration issue, saying, “it is really time that we step back from the rhetoric and look at the substance that is being proposed.”

Vegetable and citrus grower representative Ray Prewitt, who also supports a move towards the naturalization of illegal immigrants in the country, said the illegal immigrants provide a workforce for the industry and “if you are going to do those enforcement things, you have to provide for the future flow of workers.”

According to polls done in Texas, Republican voters have strong views on immigration, causing some GOP candidates to take a hard stance on illegal immigration.
