U.S. Chamber, AFL-CIO Reach Immigration Accord
"Business and labor have struggled to find consensus on immigration reform, but two of their biggest representatives have just achieved a breakthrough. The AFL-CIO and U.S. Chamber of Commerce have agreed to three immigration reforms that reflect their new consensus over how to handle future immigrant workers, suggesting that they’ll finally break the impasse that contributed to the collapse of the 2007 immigration overhaul. The two groups are still working out to hammer out a final deal with more details, but the shared principles are a sign of unmistakable progress." - Suzy Khimm, Washington Post, Feb. 21, 2013.
