The US Supreme Court will next month hear a case that will decide the fate of hundreds of thousands of people—college students, military service members, and workers in American corporations—who came to the US as the children of undocumented immigrants. An amicus brief filed by 143 industry organizations and companies who “collectively contribute trillions of dollars in annual revenue to the American economy and have millions of employees,” also urged the justices to protect Dreamers.
The group includes the National Association of Manufacturers, the National Retail Federation, the USA Chamber of Commerce, the Retail Industry Leaders Association, the American Hotel & Lodging Association, BSA | The Software Alliance, the Information Technology Industry Council, TechNet, and others.
