Two Republican lawmakers, a Democratic former House speaker, a union member and business representatives joined in an effort Tuesday to pressure Maine’s U.S. senators, independent Angus King and Republican Susan Collins, to take leadership roles in crafting a bipartisan immigration reform package in Congress.
At a State House news conference, the group asked Collins and King to sign onto the immigration reform principles favored by the Partnership for a New American Economy, a national group chaired by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch and a handful of other business leaders and big-city mayors.
