Cleveland Mayor joins Bloomberg and Rupert Murdoch to endorse immigration reform

December 19, 2010 § Leave a comment

Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson has added his name to a select group of big-city mayors and corporate CEOs calling for comprehensive immigration reform.  He is the first Midwest mayor to endorse the Partnership for a New American Economy, a crusade launched in June by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Fox News founder Rupert Murdoch.  Describing immigrants as economic catalysts, the coalition of mayors and business leaders calls for reforms that would offer earned citizenship to illegal immigrants and extend a wider welcome to job-creating, high-skill immigrants.  Jackson’s endorsement marks yet another pro-immigrant step by a mayor who once questioned the value of immigrants to a struggling city.
