Today in Cincinnati, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director John Sandweg met with business community leaders to discuss the need for commonsense immigration reform, which is critical to our nation's economic health and prosperity. During the meeting, Secretary Napolitano discussed the need for critical changes to the legal immigration system in order to create a 21st century immigration system that helps businesses continue to grow the economy.
Secretary Napolitano said, "Over the past few months, I have heard from many business leaders about how critical immigration is to businesses. That's why we were encouraged by the passage of the immigration legislation in the U.S. Senate, which would make critical changes to the legal immigration system. Together, these reforms will help us support businesses and improve our economy, while helping us continue to strengthen border security."
