Immigration Key to Future of the Midwest, Leaders Say
"[I]mmigration reform is key to the economic future of the Midwest and its ability to globally compete for talent, said a bipartisan group of business and civic leaders who gathered at the National Press Building in Washington D.C. for a conference entitled: “Immigration and U.S. Economic Competitiveness: A View from the Midwest.” ... The group timed the conference with the release of a report, “U.S. Economic Competitiveness at Risk: A Midwest Call to Action on Immigration Reform,” which looks at the role of immigration in the Midwest’s future competitiveness." - FNL, Feb. 28, 2013.
