“NCCR has a long history of supporting sensible, comprehensive, bipartisan reform measures.
“We look forward to working with the Administration and Congress to bring meaningful change to our immigration system so the laws are efficient, effective, and most importantly workable for chain restaurant owners, operators, and franchisees.
“We need responsible immigration reform in this country, and we need it now.”
