National Restaurant Association (NRA) Biography

Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
Reasoning:

“The National Restaurant Association supports sensible, meaningful steps to reform America’s immigration system, including:

A clear path to legalization: More than 11 million undocumented individuals are living and working in the United States. Many are paying taxes and contributing to the economy and their communities. These law-abiding individuals are hurt by the enforcement-only approach to immigration. Numerous polls have shown that the public strongly supports a clear path to legalization for these workers. Restaurants support this too.”
