Hey, Renew Our Economy people, I have a suggestion for you

This is from a press release by a consortium of business and political leaders calling themselves Renew Our Economy seeking to address the immigration issue. In a very pro-business way, natch.

“The Arizona companies joining our effort are proof that in all quarters of the country and in all sectors of the economy there is demand for a smarter, more sensible immigration strategy,” said Partnership Co-Chair Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. “We need reform that will both secure our borders and do more to attract and keep the workers necessary for American businesses to compete in the 21st century.”

The release identifies an impressive roster of CEOs and assorted mucky mucks and they want us to know that these titans of industry are deeply committed to forging a sensible solution to our immigration situation.

I have an idea for them: Stop endorsing and funneling wads of cash to Republicans who turn around and pass harsh anti-immigrant measures while blocking reform.

Just a thought.
