Republican support of immigration reform is wanted bturmail
Updated: 2014-01-31 15:15:07
To the editor:

The fact that House Republicans have decided to make immigration reform a top priority for the year is a sign that they appreciate the fact that addressing this issue is crucial to our overall economic vitality. For too long, the federal government's broken and dysfunctional approach to immigration abdicated the responsibility of enforcement to employers.

Desperately needed immigration reform should make it easier for well-intentioned employers to comply, while providing new opportunity for countless thousands of hard working men and women eager to help build a stronger future for our country.

We look forward to working with leaders in both parties to ensure that immigration reform becomes a reality in 2014. At the same time, we will work aggressively to ensure that any final measure provides sufficient opportunity for construction workers to enter into the domestic workforce, especially in areas of the country where firms are having a hard time finding enough qualified workers to fill positions.

Stephen E. Sandherr, CEO, Associated General Contractors of America, Arlington, VA
