Trade groups including the National Restaurant Association, International Franchise Association and United Fresh lauded the Senate for passing an immigration bill that sets a path to citizenship, while pushing for more provisions including improvements to the E-verify system. "America's restaurants support commonsense immigration reform that meets three key priorities: a clear path to legalization, national implementation of the E-Verify employee verification system that preempts inconsistent state mandates, and increased border security that won't harm legal travel and tourism," NRA president and CEO Dawn Sweeney said. "We will continue to work with members of both chambers to advocate for policies that will allow the restaurant industry to continue its role as a leading jobs creator."
