Lodging Leaders Urge Congress and White House to Take Action on Comprehensive Immigration Reform


Washington, DC.-Six leaders of the nation’s largest lodging companies have joined together to urge Congress and the Administration to end the impasse and take action on comprehensive immigration reform.

In a letter published in Roll Call and distributed to President George Bush and key members of Congress and the Administration, the leaders said, “One thing we believe in is that the current immigration system is badly broken. We believe in a balanced solution that protects our borders and recognizes the contributions of—and the need for—the foreign-born workers in our economy.”

The letter was signed by Matthew J. Hart, President and Chief Operating Officer, Hilton Hotels Corporation; Stevan Porter, President, The Americas for InterContinental Hotels Group; J.W. “Bill” Marriott, Jr., Chairman and CEO, Marriott International, Inc.; Thomas J. Pritzker, Chairman, Global Hyatt Corporation; Jonathan M. Tisch, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Loews Hotels; and Bruce W. Duncan, Interim Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide, Inc.

This call to action is timed to coincide with the motion made by Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) to begin debate on Comprehensive Immigration Reform the week of May 14th.
