On July 8, 2008, the Council on Foreign Relations released an Independent Task Force Report on U.S. Immigration Policy. The Task Force, co-chaired by former Florida governor Jeb Bush and former White House chief of staff Thomas “Mack” McLarty, concludes “The continued failure to devise and implement a sound and sustainable immigration policy threatens to weaken America's economy, to jeopardize its diplomacy, and to imperil its national security.”
The findings of the report reflect the consensus of a bipartisan group of leaders in the fields of immigration policy, homeland security, education, labor, business, academia and human rights.
