EVENT WITH NORTH CAROLINA CONGRESSWOMAN
In February 2014, ImmigrationWorks USA cosponsored a forum in Raleigh with Rep. Renee Ellmers and a dozen of her North Carolina constituents, who described how immigration reform would affect them and their communities. Participants included a diverse group of faith leaders and employers who hire immigrants, high-skilled and low-skilled – spokesmen for Cisco, Caterpillar, Golden Corral, the NC Episcopal Diocese and a local Catholic diocese, among others.
A DINNER SERIES FOR BUSINESS LEADERS AND MEMBERS OF CONGRESS
As debate intensified in the House, ImmigrationWorks continued its series of small off-the-record dinners bringing together business leaders and members of Congress on the front lines of the debate about immigration. Among the lawmakers who have attended dinners: Sens. Michael Bennet and Mike Lee and Reps. Raul Labrador and Ted Poe. Business attendees have included executives from Washington trade associations and national corporations as well as business leaders from the members' home districts.
