Bloomberg recruits Republicans to stake out a different immigration policy



Media mogul and former Mayor Michael Bloomberg has recruited Republicans as well as Democrats to help highlight the contributions of immigrants in all 435 congressional districts.

The more than 100 roundtables and other events during this week’s congressional recess comes as the Trump administration rolls out plans to speed up deportation of undocumented immigrants.

Immigrants make up 50 percent of New York City’s population and 40 percent of its workforce.

“In community after community and industry after industry, immigration is helping America and American workers,” said Jeremy Robbins, head of Bloomberg’s Partnership for a New American Economy (see ImpactAlpha’s “Immigrants and the American Economy: A Love Story”).
