Roundtable Urges Fast Action On Comprehensive, ''Common-Sense'' Immigration Reform


Illinois business leaders are pressing for what they call a “common-sense, comprehensive” approach to immigration reform… an issue that they say is about far more than immigrants who enter the country illegally. 

 

Participants at a roundtable discussion in Springfield say the current immigration system is broken… and is keeping them from filling jobs that require highly-skilled, high-tech workers. 

 

Mark Peters is a corporate attorney with Caterpillar, and says there are simply not enough Americans with the skills needed for Caterpillar to remain competitive with other manufacturers around the world.  The panelists are urging the U.S. House to adopt the immigration bill recently approved by the Senate.
