Skip to comments.Chamber Of Commerce On Immigration Reform: 'We're Going To Use Every Tool
Posted on 07/14/2014 12:23:00 PM PDT by moonshinner_09
The Chamber of Commerce has not been discouraged by the lack of legislative action on immigration reform. Instead, the business organization is digging in, pushing for an immigration overhaul as soon as possible. Were going to use every tool and resource at our disposal. And were going to keep pushing our leaders to do the right thing for our country, if not before the election, then afterperhaps during a lame-duck session, U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue declared Monday in a blog post. Last month, President Obama announced he would be taking as many unilateral actions as he is able to overhaul the nations immigration system amid congressional intransigence. House Speaker John Boehner has said that there will not be a vote on immigration reform until Obama can be trusted to implement what they pass. According to Donohue, while leaders have shown they are unlikely to move forward with immigration reform in Congress this year, his body is not going to stop pushing for it. Those of us who have been fighting for years for meaningful reform are disappointed by the lack of progress, he wrote. But were not discouraged, and were not deterred. In fact, the business community and our coalition of partnersincluding labor, law enforcement, the tech sector, civic organizations, and the faith-based communityare more determined than ever to fix our broken system. The Chamber of Commerce has been a force for immigration reform, arguing that the reforms they seek will benefit the economy by expanding businesses' access to more employees and attracting more business investment to the U.S.

“Too bad they cannot put this kind of effort into finding Americans jobs”
“expanding businesses’ access to more employees “..........???????
.these jackasses must think we’re all “tone deaf”!
The Chamber Of Horrors might be a better name for these people
I suspect it is not the same right thing that I ... and we ... are thinking.
If the chamber of commies doesn’t like it here, they can always do business elsewhere. With a little luck they would be replaced by honest businessmen.
They're referring to Democrat pols and lib talking heads.
Their main tool is one they've been using for years: luring illegal aliens to the US with the understanding that they can be hired for jobs in many types of work.
The employers who hired illegals over the years should be sitting in prison, but our governnment and both political parties have been almost totally corrupt on this issue for years.
Something truly wrong with this group.
US Chamber of Communists is arguably the most treasonous ad seditious organization in the nation. In saner times, Tom Donahue would have been convicted of treason
Chamber of Communists supports Air Obama...any politician who gets $$ from Chamber of Communists supports Air Obama as well
the C of C depends on annual membership dues from its business members.
Why are they not down at the border offering solutions?
The Chamber of Commerce is part of the enemy cabal
These “Chamber of Commerce” Dreamers are in for a rude awakening. The cheap labor they are fighting for are all going to be “fundamentally transformed” into union workers. Sorry guys. The days of dumb, cheap labor are over. The Feral government is issuing one lawyer and one union worker to every illegal alien that swims across the river these days.
Well, there are in fact lots of “tools” in the Congress ...
Alinsky predicted this. He said his movement could get American businesses blinded by a few dollars of profit and eventually they would be executed by those THEY THOUGHT they were fooling. The fool would be them.
NO. Nothing is broken you jerks. Immigration laws are unenforced.
The joke will be on them when these people all get citizenship and elect Hugo Chavez 2.0
The US Chamber of Commerce, replacing Americans with cheap slave labor for over 200 years.
Chamber of Commerce ‘tools ‘:
McCain, Grahamnsety, Rubio, Bush, Ana Navarro, Nicole Wallace, Grover Cleavland,...
Any candidate these self-interested, screw-the-country big business types support I will oppose. Because if the Chamber of Corrupted Commerce has backed them, a deal has been cut with the candidate to flood the country with more third- and fourth-worlders.
The CoC has used the conservatives back in the Clinton years. Now they see how they can get what they want from the dems. Sellouts, or maybe we’re just suckers.
We need Donahue’s address as well!
EXCELLENT MUST SEE 6 MINUTE BILL WHITTLE VIDEO!
Bill skillfully skewers the limousine leftist hypocrites on their phony feel good posturing on ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.
Please help this one also go viral! We have a country to save and we’re about out of time!!
How do we fight against this Chamber of Commerce who can’t seem to find employees among the 10% of adults unemployed or disabled because they can’t find a job in two years?
The Chamber of Congress is not a patriotic American organization. In fact, much of their leadership is from multinational corporations with no loyalty to the US at all.
So when RINOs are confused into thinking that the Chamber of Commerce is their constituency, they are failing both the United States and the people of the United States.
Donohue can go effe himself. Chamber of Commies.
The Chamber of Commerce has turned into a traitor. It makes no sense that they want to destroy America, Yet this is what they are doing.
The allure of slavery to the greedy is overwhelming.
It goes without saying that they have forfeited forever even the slightest consideration for their corporate welfare schemes that allow Obozo's business buddies like General Electric to make multi billion dollar profits year after year while being excused from corporate income taxes.
It also goes without saying that excessive spending goes the way of the dodo bird now and forever. To those who say it cannot be cut: Eliminate many of the grossly unconstitutional barnacles leeching off the government. We can live without: Foreign aid, any and all commissions dealing with "civil rights" and all their personnel, most State Department functions, imperial living standards enjoyed at our embassies, excess (most of it) funding for "leadership" staffs in both House and Senate, the entire Commerce, Labor, Education, Energy, Housing and Urban Development Departments, Bureau of Alcohol. Tobacco and Firearms, VISTA, the Peace Corps, all jobs in all cabinet departments and non-cabinet levels other than the Defense Department and U. S. Marshall's Service and Secret Service and Border Patrol and FBI, that claim a right to be armed (usually with fully automatic weapons and mountains of hollow point .45 ammo) like the Social Security System, etc., etc., etc.
I am surprised how many people here actually agree with me. I mean when you lower the taxes on the people who run the country what do you get? People who are willing to spend everyone Else’s money. I mean government is now 35%of the economy and you consider the contracts, the subsides and earmarks due to crony capitalism then you understand why these people are no longer interested in cutting spending. I never heard of big government conservatives thirty years ago when we started lowering their taxes. I think that term is just a term for people who are not paying enough taxes.
Coca-Cola is front and center on this. They signed the letter to Congress asking them to act on amnesty.
Maybe Coca-Cola should become the poster child for amnesty.
The Chamber of Commerce is a mortal enemy of America.
