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.
