July 30, 2013The Honorable John Boehner The Honorable Nancy PelosiSpeaker, The U.S. House of Representatives Minority Leader, The U.S. House of RepresentativesWashington, DC 20515 Washington, DC 20515Dear Mr. Speaker and Leader Pelosi:The undersigned organizations urge the United States Congress to enact legislation that would bringmeaningful reforms to critical components of our nation’s immigration system. Reform of an outdated, broken immigration system is essential if we are to achieve a fully revitalized economy that providesrewarding and lasting jobs and opportunities for all Americans.Thought leaders from across the ideological spectrum agree that enacting immigration reform now willaccelerate U.S. economic growth at a critical time when it has struggled to recover, and will help toenable sustained growth for decades to come. Done right, reform will also serve to protect andcomplement our U.S. workforce, generating greater productivity and economic activity that will lead tonew innovations, products, businesses, and jobs in communities across the U.S.We deal with an immigration system that is now in its third decade and completely incapable of beingresponsive to an ever-changing national economy and hypercompetitive global marketplace. Today, the problems with our immigration system have grown and multiplied to become an emerging threat to thecurrent and future productivity, ingenuity, and competitiveness of key sectors of our economy, includingagriculture, housing, manufacturing, retail, hospitality, tourism, engineering, and technology.We are united in the belief that we can and must do better for our economy and country by modernizingour immigration system. We already have been engaged with many members of Congress -- Republicansand Democrats -- on numerous components of a modern immigration system, and we urge that you not letthis momentum slip and progress vanish.Failure to act is not an option. We can’t afford to be content and watch a generation-old immigrationsystem work more and more against our overall national interest. Instead, we urge Congress to remainmindful of the clear benefits to our economy if we succeed, and work together and with us to achieve real, pro-growth immigration reform.Sincerely,Adams Insurance Service, Inc.AdobeAdvanced Decisions, Inc.Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)AGCO CorporationAlbany-Colonie (NY) Regional Chamber
