WASHINGTON, D.C. — More than 250 faith, law enforcement and business leaders from 26 states gathered today at the National Strategy Session to debut newly energized efforts — including Capitol Hill visits with key lawmakers — to push for broad immigration reform in early 2013.

The gathering builds on two years of work outside Washington, including successful regional summits, state compacts and other efforts in the Mountain West, Southeast and Midwest at which hundreds of business, faith and law-enforcement leaders have built new relationships, discussed state policies and urged pragmatic federal solutions. The alliance plans to pressure Republicans and Democrats in Congress and President Obama to ensure that broad immigration reform is the first legislative priority in 2013.
