AH&LA on Friday held a conference call with Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., to discuss the benefits of immigration reform on inbound tourism, employment and the national economy. The group and Sen. Schumer also urged members of the hospitality industry to take advantage of the congressional break to reach out to their local representatives and convince them to push the bill through Congress. "You have to step up engage and do it now. Members of Congress listen," said Shawn McBurney, AH&LA's senior vice president of governmental affairs.
