Earlier today, the American Action Forum issued a press release featuring a letter to all Congressional leadership encouraging them to place their own conservative imprint on the pending immigration legislation. The letter to Speaker of the House John Boehner is signed by American Action Forum President Douglas Holtz-Eakin, Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist and our own Chairman of the American Conservative Union, Al Cardenas.

The letter expresses support for immigration reform that secures our borders, allows for a market-driven future flow of legal immigrants, and provides a tough but humane process to earned legal status for those undocumented immigrants who wish to stay in the United States and continue to be productive members of society. As the letter states, the signees believe the House input in immigration reform legislation will "ensure that any final product has considerable conservative input, and that certain aspects of the Senate bill are markedly improved."
