Immigration

Mike Bloomberg understands that immigrants’ contributions to our economy and our culture made New York, and America, what they are today. As Mayor, Mike worked to help immigrant entrepreneurs launch small businesses and to ensure that City government can serve all of its customers, by making 311 available in 170 different languages.

A vocal champion of comprehensive immigration reform, Mike recognizes that fixing our broken immigration policies is essential to our country’s future - and to our ability to remain the world's economic superpower. Leading the charge for comprehensive national immigration reform, Mike and News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch formed the Partnership for a New American Economy - a bipartisan coalition of Mayors and CEOs to press Congress to enact real reform, now. Mike and his team are assembling the coalition, setting the agenda and raising awareness to give members of Congress the support and encouragement they need to enact real reform.
