WASHINGTON (AP) — The president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce says the organization is joining forces with labor, faith organizations, law enforcement and ethnic groups to push for comprehensive immigration reform.

Tom Donohue said in a speech Thursday that the “door to the American dream must always remain open.”

He says legislation must include a path to citizenship for the nation’s 11 million undocumented immigrants, border security and expansion of green cards for foreign nationals with advanced degrees, among other steps.

Donohue says he’s spoken to lawmakers in Congress as well as to Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO. He says the chamber hopes to build a large coalition to take advantage of the growing imperative to tackle the issue.

Donohue’s comments came as he detailed the chamber’s priorities this year.
