About BRT

Dear Members of Congress,

We are executives who lead and represent a broad-based group of business interests, impacting every part of the U.S. economy. We are united on the need for you to fix our broken immigration system. Polling data consistently shows that 70 percent or more of American voters agree.

Time is running out, but meaningful reform is possible and we encourage you to come together on reforms that will revitalize our economy.

Meaningful immigration reform would have strong economic benefits for our country including:

  • Millions of new jobs and increased GDP.
  • Advances in innovation, entrepreneurship, and new business startups needed to grow our local, state and national economies.
  • Significant federal deficit reduction.
  • A legal and enforceable framework for employers and workers – in all parts of our economy – to play by the rules.

Immigration reform is a National Economic Imperative. It is yours to lead and yours to deliver. Please act for the good of our economy and our nation.
