Business Roundtable Statement on Immigration Policy Changes

June 22nd, 2020

Washington – Business Roundtable today issued the following statement regarding the Administration’s immigration policy announcements: 

“As we continue to work with policymakers to meet the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic, Business Roundtable is concerned that the Administration’s proposed changes to immigration policy will disrupt business operations, the lives of our employees and ultimately harm our ability to do our part to rebuild the economy. We believe that the government should administer U.S. immigration laws in a transparent, consistent and predictable manner. Businesses are more likely to invest and grow in the United States if they know how the government will administer immigration rules. Immigrants make invaluable contributions to our country and CEOs of America’s largest employers will continue to advocate for bipartisan solutions to modernize our immigration system.”
